Don’t break the bridge

“He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has a need to be forgiven.”
– Thomas Fuller

I simply love the photos paired with quotations that Beth shares. About this one she writes:

This is especially hard for me right now….forgiving others. I think when people hurt you, and they are not sorry, nor feel concern whatsoever for your broken heart, it makes it harder to forgive and forget. Trying to let go of the pain and trying not to let those stabs pain your heart is easier said than done, right? Sometimes we just have to let it go, not take it personally and move on.

In these times I have noticed more often that people are getting nastier. They are miserable and want to make others feel as awful as they do. All we can do is unplug. Distance ourselves from the hatred and surround ourselves with love. Don’t let the negativity destroy you!

Sending each on of my Flickr friends good vibes during these trying times! XO

  1. Well! Aside from the beautiful photo of that old bridge*, this hit me in my sweet spot today. It’s tough out there right now. So much hate and incivility and just plain meanness everywhere. Big thanks to Beth for her important take on what I’m sure we hope is a temporary descent into ugliness.

    *It may be eligible for some infrastructure fund repairs, thanks to a Senate that actually did something yesterday!
