1. Forgive And Let Go.

Have it at the back of your mind that, the act of forgiving someone is for your benefit, not for someone else. Mind you, you are not just going to forgive someone in a second or one day because you were told to forgive,

forgive is something that takes a lot of time to get over, so being patient with yourself is very necessary, I know that is very difficult at times to separate how or what you feel emotionally, but you just have to practice the act to let go.

I for one have been hurt so badly that I find it difficult to forgive, it hurt me so bad that whenever I remember the situation or hear the name of the person I become harden and furious,I couldn't forgive and I refuse to let it go,

I have experienced deep emotional pain that has made it incredibly challenging for me to forgive. The hurt I felt was so intense that every time I recall the situation or come across the person involved,

I feel myself growing hardened and overwhelmed with anger. I've found it impossible to let go of that pain, and forgiveness seems out of reach for me.It affected me so deeply that I didn't even realize I was neglecting myself, and it became apparent to everyone around me how disheveled I appeared.

"Even when I made an effort to appear good, my inner bitterness and anger overshadowed any beauty I tried to show." After feeling overwhelmed with anger about even the smallest things, I made the decision to forgive and let go. I was pleasantly surprised by how much lighter and relieved I felt.

It was as if my heart had been set free, bringing me a sense of peace and joy reminiscent of a carefree child.My beauty returned and shone so brightly that others could see. The pain of hearing the names of those who hurt me and feeling hurt inside vanished. That's when I realized I had forgiven and let go.

When you make a conscious effort to concentrate on redirecting all your energies towards recognizing the advantages of forgiveness and releasing grudges, you open yourself up to a smoother journey through life.

Letting go involves acknowledging the pain you've internalized, but refusing to let it overshadow your ability to live in the moment and approach the future with optimism, free from any lingering feelings of remorse.


2. Focus On The Present Not The Past.

When you focus on the past too much, it can be difficult to move forward. It's important to learn from the past, but dwelling on it excessively may hinder your progress and prevent you from embracing new opportunities. Keep your eyes on the future, and focus on the potential ahead.

It's important to prioritize focusing on the present and accepting that the past is behind us, rather than allowing it to influence our current moments.

For me, this was the method I use to forgive and let go when the past was hurting me because I refuse to let it go.

I had to channel the energy I placed in the past to the present, I forgave the people in my past and concentrated on the present, what I could do better for myself and what I intend to change for myself all these were my priorities,

I was engross with these thoughts that I couldn't remember how I was hurt in the past. And peradventure I remember, I was always grateful for my present knowing fully well my future would be as amazing as I thought.

When you reflect on your past always realize that the past is over, and it's not coming back anymore, else in your mind, it will cause stress and unhappiness. Instead of placing all your focus on the past, try bringing back your focus to the present moment and at the same time find what gives you joy and peace of mind, and acknowledge all which gives you joy in your present moment.


3. Never Go To Bed Angry.


 3. Never Go To Bed Angry.

Avoid going to bed in an angry state of mind, it's totally bad, and the worst part of it is you won't enjoy your sleep. Why?  Because your heart is full of anger and hate this attribute won't bring sleep to your eyelid mind you, your subconsciousness controls everything happening around you.

One of the best ways to fall asleep or sleep peacefully when angry is to let go of that anger, and to do that is listening to blues which I recommend to countless numbers of people,

listening to affirmations, while listening to each of them, start visualizing that which you want at that very moment, you won't know when you doze off.


4: Feel And Express Your Emotions.

Ignoring your pain will definitely prevent forgiveness, mind you, you can never heal what you can't feel, you only heal what you can feel, and there is never forgiveness in a room full of anger, hurt, and sadness.

This was one of the ways I was able to forgive and let go, yes, I had to feel the sad emotion, feel the pain, feel the hurt, it got to me so badly that I could not hold back my tears, I allow myself to feel what has happened to me in the past and it was hurtful, emotional, and nice,

because I allow myself to pass through that pain instead of ignoring it and acting up. I poured out all the negative emotions, relieving myself of the negative energy, only with that was I able to forgive and let go.

But until we come to realize that we all just need to release the emotions that have held us bound for a very long time, we won't be able to forgive, and forget about the past, and that can be a blockage to the future.

So it's better to forgive and let go than to keep the offence in your mind. Keep in mind that there's no self-forgiveness without passing through the road of hurt.

Finally do not get stuck in your own emotions, protect yourself and hold strong boundaries toward people, honour your space and you are good to go.
