There are some individuals whom I never want to see nor meet again. I had a bad experience dealing with them in the past and know that they are not well-wishers of my family.
However, something happened which made me soften my stand. I heard that they had suffered a medical emergency, and overcoming my emotions of hate and anger, I decided to help them. I am so proud of myself for having the courage to do so. I realise that people give out and express what they have within them. They acted out their tendencies as I did mine.
I firmly believe that even though you may not be with someone in their good times, you must support them as best as possible when their luck runs out. Today, I am happy because I chose to forgive and let go of my grievances and become a more positive person.
Forgiving and letting go is empowering.
