Forgive me.

Good morning, my loved one.

Today…will you forgive me?

I have hurt you.

I was reckless with your heart.

I broke a promise.

I forgot something very important to you.

I was self-absorbed.

I said something mean and thoughtless.

I was irresponsible.

I lied.

I withdrew.

red-roseI attacked.

I gossiped.

I made you my enemy.

But I love you so much.  How could I have done any of these things?

I lost my way.

I got confused.

I felt small.

I felt so exposed and vulnerable.

I was afraid you’d be disappointed in me.

I feared your judgement.

I didn’t want you to leave me.

I miss our closeness.

And I didn’t have the awareness, the consciousness or the tools necessary to communicate any of this to you.  But at my very core, despite my actions, I just want to connect with you.

I don’t always know how to express this to you, but I hope you feel the truth of it now.

I am not asking you to excuse my behavior; I take responsibility for my actions.

Nor am I looking to justify any of it.

Excusing or justifying or minimizing or dismissing  – none of these is forgiving.

I do want you to know, hurting you is never, ever, my conscious intention.

My Essence self seeks only to love us both.

However, when I am vulnerable, my Ego self does its best to avoid pain, even if that means hurting you.  In fact, my Ego self looks to make you my enemy as a way to help me feel less vulnerable…

So, please forgive me:  know that I am imperfect; understand that I am human; have faith that I am growing and learning with each mistake and mis-step…just like you.

I love you.  I’m sorry.  Please forgive me.  Thank you.

Breathe and remember at the core of each of us is:

I am brilliant;

I am magnificent;

I am a being of Love and Light.

I am here to bring my Essence Self to the world.

The world needs me.
