"Forgiveness is giving up all hope for a better past."
- Corinne Edwards (paraphrasing Gerald Jampolsky), Love Waits On Welcome
The way you treat your past selves is likely the way you treat your present self. #RTA
When we say "stay in your own business," that includes staying out of the business of your past and future selves. #RTA too.
If you're moving away from something in your past, or toward (or away from) something you think is in your future, STAHP. Come back to now. Surrender both.
If you're averse to a potential outcome and try to steer the ship away from it, your controlling mindset will more often steer you directly into the thing you're afraid of.
Rocky relationships aren't "broken" and need "fixing." They just are what they are. Detach from your desires/fears for specific outcomes, and focus on being the most authentic you you can be.
