The Power of Achieving Personal Freedom Through Forgiveness
How much energy do you have caught up in resentment, regret and anger?
How much time do you waste punishing yourself for making a mistake or a “bad decision”?
Probably more than you’d like to admit.
I get it, trust me.
It was only a few years ago that I discovered how much my inability to forgive - myself and others - was impacting my ability to show up my best, in all areas of my life.
During this episode I’m sharing my own very personal story about having to practice forgiveness in order to move on with my life and providing you with tools and strategies I used to help me move through all the negative stuff in a healthy and impactful way.
My hope is that this conversation helps you understand how resentment—even of the most justified variety—really only serves to make you wallow in anger and toxicity. And while it is a tough one to work through, I hope it gives you the courage to start to do the work.
