Have you ever wondered how much you’ve hurt a person? Look behind you. See that trail of tears, broken promises, the piles of half truths and lies? That is the mess that you left behind–correction, that you’ve been dragging around because you never felt as though you deserved better. And since you let your inadequacies control your life, you inflicted that negativity on everyone around you. Again, that was the old you. Learn to forgive yourself. Close your eyes and envision that person that you will become.
Before you start running around apologizing to people and promising them that you’ll never do it again. Stop! It was your words that created this mess. Why not show them instead? Show them how much you’ve changed. Show them that you got your act together. Like the old adage says, “Don’t talk about it, be about it.”
