It all boils down to forgiveness.
The key to happiness. to contentment. To joy...
Forgive those who hurt you and stop holding the new people in your life accountable for someone else's mistakes.
Forgive yourself for not always doing your best.
Forgive someone for being short or cold because you just don't know whats happening in their world.
Forgive yourself for acting in fear.
Just forgive and forget.
Live only for this moment because it's really all that matters.
Does what that one person said that one time even really matter now?
Does it really matter what you think may or may not happen in the future?
We create suffering for ourselves by stewing on a thing that already happened or by freaking out about a thing that hasn't even happened yet.
That makes zero sense.
Stop stewing. Start living.
