you must make the decision to let go
of the pain, anger, and resentment you have been holding on to.
This requires you to take action.

this will be a difficult step for you.

you have been holding on to for so many years.

the weight of the world has been taken off your shoulders.
In this process it is important to forgive
not just the others in our lives, but also ourselves.
For most people, giving ourselves
the gift of forgiveness is very challenging.
