Journaling Prompt No.43
In your journal write a letter (you will never send) to someone you have unresolved issues with. Who you are upset with, feel anger towards or to someone who has left you feeling ‘off centre’ after something they have said or done. You can even write the letter to yourself about a regret you are holding onto. Explain how you are feeling and get it all out. If you are ready, at the end of the letter I encourage you to try and write:
‘I forgive you, I’m sorry, thank you, I love you‘.
If it feels difficult, know it is not for their benefit but for your own. This is from the Hawaiian practice of forgiveness know as Ho’oponopono, created to help release you from holding onto negative emotions about a situation. Therefore allowing you to move forward.
