Welcome to Love, Sex, and Everything in Between! My name is Martha and I am a sexologist and I am playing your Fairy God Sister. So, what message do I have for you this week?
There is a saying, I can forgive but I cannot forget. Can you forgive even though you cannot forget? It is hard to forgive and forget when we have been hurt and it’s hard to trust again when we have been hurt.
I’d like to share with you this saying, “Harboring unforgiveness is like drinking poison and hoping your enemy would die. Unforgiveness poisons anyone who holds it causing him to become bitter, and it’s impossible to be better and get better at the same time.” by Joyce Meyer.
Do you feel that your heart has shut down because of past hurts? This week, I like you to think about whether there’s anybody in your life that you need to forgive so that you can move on with your life so that you don’t stay bitter, but you get better. It’s not for the benefit of that person. It’s really for your benefit.
Think about who you need to forgive this week – and do it!
