Daily Dose of Light ♡
Good Morning my beautiful friends! It’s a rainy week and I’m trying not to let it bring my mood down, I encourage you guys to do the same!
In honor of The Recovery Room theme of the week being Forgiveness, I want to talk about parental forgiveness. Sometimes our parents' situations can unintentionally cause issues later on in life. Personally, I found myself being angry with my parents for a lot of things I went through. But there comes a time when you get tired of being angry. It hurts more to hold on to the pain. You are also a part of your parents healing process, whether you know it or not. This strained relationship that is hurting you is hurting your parents equally if not more.
Anyone can hold onto anger and resentment, but it takes true growth and strength to forgive.
You have to want better for yourself, and understand that there are things that are out of your control and one of those things is who your parents are. I’m working on letting go of the pain that I blamed my parents for and it is making it easier to talk to them, and I can tell that they are surprised but excited with this change in my attitude.
So this is for the people who struggle with forgiving their parents. Be strong. I know it hurts to dwell on the thoughts and why you felt the way you felt, and forgiveness will absolutely not happen overnight. But I imagine it will feel so much better when you and your parents can talk with one another without the heartache.
Have a blessed day and stay beautiful!
♡ Verse for The Recovery Room Theme: Forgiveness
Micah 7:18-20 (NKJV)
Who is a God like You
And passing over the transgression
of the remnant of His heritage?
He does not retain His anger forever,
Because He delights in mercy.
He will again have compassion on us,
And will subdue our iniquities.
♡ Verse of the Day
Exodus 20:12 (NKJV)
Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
