Four Pillars to Be Happy, Joyful and Free | Amy Chuang
How does one forgive someone that hurt them when they were vulnerable, too young or too weak to fight back? It may feel as if the world is conspiring against you for some strange reason. The pain from this can run so deep that it almost becomes as badge of honor or trophy that feeds your ego with a well earned hatred for this person and what they did to you for years. This hatred can build up for so long that you begin to make it part of you and wonder what it will mean to let it go. You may wonder, “I’m just a victim that allows others to push me around? Am I weak? How can anyone ever love someone like me?” Some people hold on to this victim mentality because they feel this makes the person that hurt them forever lower than them because they now owe them. Therefore, if they forgive they will forever be foregoing what they are owed. In this episode we explore the four pillars that will help you forgive others and yourself to bring you true happiness, joyfulness and freedom to live a better life.
