Life becomes easierEveryone has been hurt by at least one person in their lifetime.  Some of those hurts run deeper than just one of life’s experiences.  I recently had conversations with about four different people totally unrelated speaking about the topic of apologies.  Haven’t you said or felt that if he/she would just apologize you could move on?  I have also been there with thinking that I needed an apology from someone in order to have closure.  After having those recent conversations, I remember saying to a couple of these people to not be a slave to an apology.
Closure  IS WHEN PEOPLE SHOW YOU WHO THEY ARE AND YOU BELIEVE THEM!!!! CASE CLOSED!! MOVE ON!!

 

We give people too much power over our happiness and our mental well being.  While an apology does at times help to feel better about someone or a situation, we should not be dependent upon someone else doing the right thing in order to feel better.  Why does anyone deserve that much power over you?  I have learned in my life time that people are going to be people.  At the very least, the gift you get in someone who does not apologize for hurting you is them showing you who they are.  When you know what and who you are dealing with, count it as a gift of knowledge.

Today-I-Take-back-my-powerTherefore, when someone hurts you, don’t sit around waiting on them to apologize in order for your heart and mind to heal.  Instead, take that energy and use it toward being a better you by putting your faith and trust in God and not man.

I am freeRemember, God will never fail you!
