Hope! It is such a personal thing, holding hope for life, for love, holding hope for peace and forgiveness… but when should we give up hope? When should be stop holding on to past love, past relationship’s?
“Forgiveness is the release of all hope for a better past!” – Buddy Wakefeild
I Have read so many posts on media saying let go, don’t let them back in, don’t speak to them, don’t, don’t don’t!!! But love, real LOVE that we have held, nurtured, and felt, just doesn’t go away. There are multiple levels of love, called “SOULMATES” or “TWINFLAMES” these phrases are spiritually real, and although some would consider them nonsense, the reality is we are drawn to those who feel a deeper connection to our own soul, be it an earthy or a spiritual connection…
Yes, there are people who will or have used you as a stepping stone in their life, who spoke about love, who may have even said the words “I love you” but let’s be honest with life, honest with ourselves and honest with each other. If someone has just slammed the door of life shut, refuses to communicate and most of all refuses to offer you forgiveness.
Take a breath and let that feeling of hope for that connection go.
As Najwa Zebian shares in his quote, “do not deny your soul its rights”
“The day I decided to forgive you”
I decided to forgive you.
Not because you apologised or because you acknowledged the pain that you caused me, but because my soul deserves – Peace…
I will not deny my soul its rights”
it’s not that you have to stop feeling love for those who have left your life, it’s not that you must treat them with the same distain, in fact you must offer them love and light. More importantly it’s that you must give yourself room to breathe and emotionally settle back into your own oneness.
Hope, much like other forms of faith is based on feelings, experiences and lessons learnt, we all hope for love, we all hope for deeper connections and we ALL hope not to be hurt or let down again… all of us… We are human and we will make mistakes, we will fail and we will experience trauma of many kinds in this lifetime. It is hope that gets us through those moments, hope that is bound to us on a deeply personal level, our own feelings of what is real for us.
The difficulty is that there is a BIG difference between healing from something and ignoring it… Time alone doesn’t heal every wound… The difficulty of not having closure and holding hope is that Time will not heal when hope keeps feeding the desire to remain connected to that moment, be it love, trauma or grief…
If we hold on to hope, we must hold on to it for the right reasons, hold on to hope to help dreams come true, love to blossom and happiness to come… There is no point of holding on to hope that someone in your past will come back, or will re-open to you… especially if they have closed the door on your life without empathy or compassion. Let them go… Let hope be something that brings love and light to your life ~ Leo – The motive
