Forgiveness - Making peace with pain.

How do you make peace with pain? If it were towards a person, a time in life, or an entire childhood, recognize first that you can be grateful that time is over. What remains today is a memory. If 10 years were spent living in that pain, know that this day forward, you get to live without it. Keep your mind in the present. See the positives. Today is better than any of those days, and you appreciate good people more due to it. There were lessons in there that you never have to learn again. You are here. Now, you are truly free to live. ~Doe Zantamata
