Redemption

The very best days of our lives are those days when we see that the people, events and circumstances set for our destruction, for our hurt, and to keep us down did not succeed. They were unable to outwit the strength of our rebellion to get back up, to be happy and to live fully in spite of them and because of them. When we can look back and see that those same people, events and circumstances set to harm us are exactly where we left them, we will have the satisfaction of our ability to thrive and come out ahead. Redemption doesn’t come in the form of getting back at people, at making them pay for what they did. It comes in moving gracefully and elegantly beyond them. We do not need mean words or retaliating actions to achieve feelings of redemption. Mean people don’t need our help in taking them down or exposing them. In being mean, manipulative and unkind they set their miserable lives up for destruction all on their own. They present as kind people, but their facade always wears off. 0nce we see exactly who they really are, is exactly when they become the most manipulative to get us to stay. They have nothing of value for us to stay for. Do not give them a piece of your mind. Do not give them your words, time or energy. If you give them any of that, you give them your attention. Move on. Your greatest redemption is being happy and to relish in the new love and new opportunities in your life. You will forever be able to look back at these people and see they don’t move forward in life to better, they move backward into worse.
