All of us, at some point or another, have folks who treat us cruelly or in ways we do not deserve, and this can understandably lead to bitterness. Bitterness is a heavy burden to carry around and can cause us to lash out at others out of the internal pain we suffer.
When we release bitterness, we don’t excuse people for the bad they have done. Rather, we let Love free us from our painful prison, and this allows us to enter a new world of creativity, opportunity, and emotional well-being.
It is a world in which we are able to let go of our pain in order to love ourselves and to stop perpetuating the cycle of pain. This brings healing not only to our own hearts but to the world as well.
