Which heavy baggage have you been lugging around for so long? Which guilt have you been hiding? What is eating your very soul? And what is the price that you are paying for it? Is it worth it? Do old sorrows, setbacks, perceived insults, grudges, and so on matter in the long run? Don’t you think that the price is too high?
It’s high time to bury the dead- let the past be past. Don’t rake up dead issues and don’t water those poisonous weeds. Don’t give energy to something which is too heavy for your mind body and soul because it is likely to break the back of your endurance. Bathe yourself in the gentle glow of God’s unconditional grace and mercy. ~Latika Teotia
Selective amnesia or forgetfulness is good for leading a happy life. Forget the uncomfortable incidents and be grateful for the good ones. Write your bitter memories on sand and the good ones on stone so that winds of time can quickly sweep away the bad memories and the memorable ones remain permanently etched.~Latika Teotia
As long as there are people in our lives of our past whom we have not forgiven, we are not free of them. We are carrying them on our back. They are with us all the time forever close, breathing down our necks, whispering into our ears, threatening our piece of our mind, a constant conscious or unconscious reminder of our pain or injustice. Only forgiveness has the power to break this chain of pain. Forgiveness cleanses the soul. For your own good, try to forgive some today , I know it is easier said than done but you can consciously try to practice forgiveness. A better way to live peacefully is to constantly forgive. ~Latika Teotia
Forgive and forget what had happened. Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures. Relax !!! You are constantly evolving. Love yourself to bits.
If you commit a mistake, stop berating and punishing yourself. You are human and you will commit mistakes. God loves you so seek His forgiveness and move on.
Maybe, the mistakes you commit could be because you’ve been pushing yourself too hard. Maybe, it’s time to take a break. Give yourself “me” time- you may feel rejuvenated after your ‘aloneness’. Draw upon your inner strength and come out even stronger and better. With God on your side you don’t have to worry. Start appreciating your strengths you have been blessed with and practice self compassion.~Latika Teotia
You don’t have to be too harsh on yourself when things go wrong and punish yourself for every mistake- in fact I feel that you don’t need to chastise yourself at all. When we condemn or castigate ourselves for any folly, we are letting loose an air of negativity- punishments have this uncanny trait of lowering the morale and bringing gloom all around. So, it’s okay to commit mistakes- we all do- learn from them and move ahead. ~Latika Teotia
If you notice the day we are judging and looking down on ourselves that day we are very edgy and judging others too. Our mood reflects what we feel inside. Judgment brings so much negativity and blocks our energy. We are not able to give our 100% to anything whether work or relationship. On the other hand self compassion brings harmony and has ripple effect as all love begins with love within. So try consciously to practice self love and forgiveness daily. It will bring a lot of peace into your life. ~Latika Teotia
Instead of holding grudges against those who hurt you, how about filling your heart with love and gratitude for those who stood by you !!! ~Latika Teotia
