Just days before my 21st birthday I discovered that my boyfriend had tried cheating on me for the fourth time that year. I was heartbroken and exhausted from trying to share my love with someone who couldn't stay dedicated to me. Due to a promise I'd made to myself after catching him the third time, I ended it.
If someone has treated us badly, an inability to forgive will cause the situation to return to our mind again and again, each time loaded with intense emotions that can eat away at our own inner well-being. It is important to remember that forgiveness doesn't mean that we are condoning something that wasn't all right.
Don't get me wrong, it is a choice. And not an easy one. But when you accept your body, really truly accept yourself where you are now, your whole world will change. Because how you feel on the inside affects everything else in your life. And you deserve a life where you feel good, both inside and out.
