Happy #ForgivingFridays everyone! Join with fellow bloggers & post about forgiveness ANY DAY this week! It can be about loving, forgiveness, trust, acceptance, or anything that opens you to forgive. (See guidelines below ❤ ) This post is also my contribution this week for Niki’s Kindness Challenge, Choosing Kindness
Today’s Forgiving Fridays is trusting myself to love.
I got really upset again in my relationship last night.
He said he would do one thing and then did something else. I got upset.
A part of why I got upset is because he asked me to handle something I thought he would do. My time is pretty booked today. So what do I do?
I decided to follow my own advice in my recent video 🙂 , and breathe and listen within. When I did this, I got how unnerving it is for me when someone doesn’t keep their word. The truth is, am I keeping MY word. (Relationship is a mirror).
The truth is, I say I’m going to do something and reneg on myself a lot. Especially to please someone else. The reason? Well I just have an old belief that I am not worth respecting my own needs. Until now.
I forgive this old belief. I placed a judgment out there that my partner should do what I can not do for myself. I forgive myself for judging myself for doing this. And most of all, I forgive myself for judging myself as unworthy of respecting my own needs.
And I can express myself to my partner and really listen to what he needs too.
I let go, and relax, and I am EMBRACING patience with myself as I build new habits. I love myself so much. The truth is: I am worthy of respecting my own needs. It starts there.
The truth is, my partner did the best that he could. He’s a lovely man.
I am taking the time inside to say that time is not the end all – love is. All is really OK.
No matter what I choose to do, the key for me is to choose love. I commit to that.

Time is Not All The Way Home – A Poem of Forgiveness
-Do you want?
She whispered, through
the pain of her
-Do you see?
She screamed, as the
clock struck twelve.
-Do you care?
She cried, as her
heart spoke to her.
It spoke, and the many
the Father Time
let go of
its true grip, it
stopped + she saw,
for the one
of her heart.
Why?” She answered
For Love (+ For Now)
