Dear Burdened Girl,

It’s hard to be the kind of loving person you are and to be angry at the same time.

Today just might be the day to finally let the anger go . . . to put down the heavy burden of someone whose actions have been burning a hole in the peaceful part of your heart.

Remember that forgiving doesn’t mean the offense was okay or that you don’t have the right to protect yourself from being hurt again. It means you can choose to stop letting that event KEEP hurting you.

Your heart will start to heal the minute you decide . . . you don’t have to decide today, but wouldn’t it be nice to do it soon? Your heart is ready, and you are strong enough to do this for yourself.

Peace is waiting for you.

You are so loved.
