Golden Guidance Journal (p. 212)
Through life’s ups and downs, maintaining a present and open mind provides discernment and clarity - allowing us to be self-aware and responsible for the energy, words, and actions we give.
Our lived experiences are powerful. Unresolved past emotions can lie dormant until triggered by a conversation or event. Not fully acknowledging or processing past pain results in inflicting that same pain and energy onto others.
While we should never betray ourselves by being complicit in the chaos and excuse the misbehaviors -
alternatively, we can give compassion, grace, love, and forgiveness - with boundaries supporting the direction for healing, growth, and renewed change.
