1/27/13 – Confucius says…

Standard

“To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it.” – Confucius

This is a tough one! I feel as though we all hold on to pain and resentment and focus our energy on how we have been wronged or hurt instead of moving forward. It’s an easy habit to get caught up in. But when you stop and really think about it, what can you do? You can’t change what has been done or said to you and if you harbor your energy towards trying to you are just wasting your time and energy. You might as well focus your energy on the positives in your life, on those people and things that DON’T wrong you. Remembering the wrong and the negative is allowing people, words or situations to live rent free in your head. You give your power away. Remember, YOU are the only one that has control over your mind and your thoughts.

I needed this quote today…it really hits home with current relationships in my life and reading this made me reflect and redirect my energy. It’s hard to forget being wronged, but remembering it drains us. I think the important thing is to just remember what it taught you!
