Laying down the right to be offended. It will free your heart from bitterness and allow you to embrace humility.
When we become offended by something or someone we need to stop, take a moment to assess. Why am I feeling some kind of way? And if we are truly honest with ourselves we will find that we have either offended someone else in the past in the very same way or offended ourselves. We only feel offended when the offense resonates with us!
That's a hard pill to swallow, to admit that we have been guilty of doing what we now are offended by. This is where forgiveness comes in.
Forgive yourself and others. Don't sit with the offense, nursing it like it deserves all of your good attention! Lay it down! free it! Now, that does not mean you pretend it didn't happen. It just means that you refuse to keep breeding it. Instead, breed humility, breed love, breed forgiveness! Know when a situation requires you to step away permanently, but step in love!👠💃
I love ya'll for real!
