“Feeling Stuck” was the subject of an email from Dr. Robert Anthony that caught my attention this morning. So what does being stuck have to do with forgiveness? The first paragraph of the email explained it:
“If you feel stuck in any area of your life it could very well be due to a lack of forgiveness. Perhaps you are having trouble forgiving someone else or yourself. It doesn’t matter. Holding on to past memories or “stories” is guaranteed to tie up your energy and block your ability to attract what you want.”
Wow now that was certainly food for thought. Everyone has specific areas of their lives where they excel and a few in which they are simply “stuck.” Stuck areas are those that cause you the recurring grief, where there’s no movement and no progress. Think about your life. Where are you “stuck?” Who do you need to forgive? Is it yourself or others? I don’t know about you, but that’s given me a lot to think about today.” So here’s five questions you need to answer to move on?
- List the areas of your life that you are feeling stuck in. (job, relationships, health, etc.)
- Think about what negative stories you are holding onto in that area.
- Who or what is the source? Are you angry with yourself or is it someone else?
- Pray on it and figure out a way to forgive them or yourself.
- Let it go!
Remember as we forgive, we too are forgiven!
