The Truth Shall set Us Free: Acceptance and Forgiving


Everybody makes mistake;

For some these mistakes are minor ones and can easily be ignored;

But for others, these mistakes could mean major changes of events and situations of their lives; and major loses as well;

In any case, mistakes bring about consequences that are beyond repair and so painful to bear; most consequences are so painful especially when we lose our love ones as a result;

Then we ask why and how did it happen?

Most common defense is, “I did not do anything wrong, I just did what I am supposed to do in a given situation”

Nobody would like to accept personal mistakes or weaknesses;

We, humans, have built-in defense mechanisms that are actually causes of our own downfalls;

If only we will try to examine ourselves, examine the deepest motives of our hearts and be assertive in any given situations as we give values to ourselves and to all concerned then these broken hearts could have been avoided;

A happy and contented life could only be experienced if we will try to assess our own values system and assert our moment by moment interactions with people and things that are dear to us;

One wrong step will delete everything good that we had worked hard in the past in order to achieve the dreams for happiness;

Life is full of twists and turns;

If these twists and turns come without us being aware of its appearance then it’s high time for us to acknowledge and accept our ignorance of the situation;

By just acknowledging our ignorance is already the first step to learn and to improve our lives in all aspects; be it in relationships, money matters and in everything that we value in life;

Everybody makes mistakes;

It all now depends with the individual if he would acknowledge his mistakes and learn from it’

Acknowledging mistakes does not necessarily mean blaming ourselves;

The fact that we all make mistakes only mean that we accept our being human and here we can have the chance to practice real forgiving;

We can then be compassionate with ourselves, forgive ourselves then accept ourselves completely including our flaws and weaknesses;

If we are capable of forgiving, accepting and loving ourselves despite all the flaws and mistakes and inaccuracies then this is the only time that we can also forgive those who we feel and think had done us wrong;

The act of true forgiving both ourselves and those who had done us wrong is a virtue that could open us the door to more blessings as a reward;

Try forgiving and life would be good to you.

Well done,Jynz.! Like they say, third time is a charm. A Good man is hard to find these days and you are lucky to have found one. You couldn't be any luckier than that. It is a scary world out there when it comes to finding a good partner in life. I got lucky with mine as well. It's not perfect but wouldn't trade my marriage for anything else. Good luck to you and welcome to the USA soon.

Globetrekkermel,

Hi Globe, yes there are unavoidable circumstances in life that prevent us from getting or doing exactly what we had planned; I should know otherwise I am now with my husband in the U.S. Speaking of my going to the U.S., as usual, the process is very slow especially in my case where I had some marriages (2 to be exact) in the past that had not been dissolved yet despite its distance...20 years or so apart...now this problem had been solved at last...after 3 years of so much struggle with lawyers and the draining of finances. If my husband is not that determined to make this marriage work, he would had given up long time ago. He had been visiting me here 4 times in the last 3 years ...but I still consider myself very lucky to have a husband like him. Despite all hurdles I still feel truly loved...woo! what could be better than that in life?

Hi Jynz,Lol! I wish I was globetrotting the world as you presume.There had been life's detours lately that had me staying homebound.Sighs ,LOL! Travels had been confined just within the US lately -weekend trips here and there . Am still gearing up for that epic journey Trans Siberian trip in September though.I hope to be getting my Russian and Chinese visa soon. First time I have to secure a visa to visit onother country.What's up with that? I thought the cold war is over.LOL! I guess the Russians and the Chinese are suspicious of American citizens visiting their countires. Really , what is the likelihood of me ,an Asian American 5 feet tall, 140 pounds with nothing but a backpack in my back terrorizing the Russians or the Chinese and blowing up their train? Bogus immigration laws if you ask me. LOL! Geese Louise ! Oh well, like a consciencious and responsible traveler , if you want it ,get it and no way around it but get a visa ,LOL! Will you be coming to the states soon?

Globetrekkermel,

Hi Globe...so you must still be away from home in your wandering around the globe...there is always life in the other side of the pond but we can only have one life...the one we choose to tread...we cannot both be standing and sitting at the same time unless the other act is mere mental or imagination...

Globetrekkermel,

Hehe...there's truth in that...reason why we keep repeating the same mistake is perhaps because we are the same person and our minds are creating patterns not only in our behaviors but in our lives as a whole...

Thanks for the comment Globe.

The humility to accept your own mistakes is very liberating. After all, we are all bound to make mistakes. We should expect that in our lives. I know ,I do. I do it all the time, LOL! Have I learned from my mistakes? Yes and no. In fact, I have repeated some of the same mistakes over and over again. But that is ok, I am still trying to rectify the problem and I have not given up yet. hehehe! Talk about repeat performance extraordinaire! LOL! That's I , ME and MOI!
