When you forgive those that have hurt you, you take away their power.
Life has been really hectic lately and I’ve been dealing with a lot of emotional and academic stressors. Trying to maintain a high level of self-confidence and positivity has been hard but the people I keep around me and the music I listen to have helped a lot.
It really is true that forgiving people takes away that power they could have over you because although negativity is easy to spread—positivity is too. Choose to be positive and everything will improve.
“You can’t forget about me
While you weren’t looking I was gettin’ even higher
Say what you want about me
Your words are gasoline on my fire
You can hate me, underestimate me
Do what you do ’cause what you do don’t phaze me
Just when you think I’m at the end
Any second I’mma catch my second wind” ~Second Wind by Kelly Clarkson
If you’re feeling downtrodden listen to the Kelly Clarkson song. It is impossible for me to listen to that song and not feel empowered.
I hope you’re having a wonderful day.
Until next time,
