Let It Go, Christian
Have you ever helped someone move? It’s a dreaded call to get. And if you have a truck, you get it all the time.
When helping someone move, everyone avoids the boxes labeled “books”. Why? Because they’re so freakin’ heavy, of course. Eventually, you’re all stuck moving the book boxes all at once—and it hurts and you get tired real fast. But it gets even worse. Then you have to move them all again when you get to the new place.
>Like books, unforgiveness will weigh you down.
You’ve got to learn to let things go:
When people hurt you, you have to let it go. Even if you’re 100% absolutely unequivocally right, you have to let it all go.
It’s not easy, but you have to.
Now, that doesn’t mean you should forget about it. You have to learn from it. The old “forgive and forget” motto is wrong, though . That’s dangerous, but more on that another time.
>Unforgiveness will weigh you down, make you grumpy, bitter, and jaded.
Ever been around someone who keeps bringing up wrongs from 10 years ago? If so, then you know exactly what I mean. Like in a funhouse, they are a distorted ugly mirror image of what they once were.
Let it go. Let it all go. Or it will destroy you.
