1. My word would be 'Forgiveness'.

    See I am one of those people that holds grudges. Some grudges I have held on to for a very long time and for the most part they or so insignificant in my life that to continue to hold this grudge towards them is not only dumb but detrimental to my own happiness.

    I have always seen myself as a caring human being and for anyone to take advantage of my kindness not only just pisses me off; it truly irritates me for a long time.

    I like to think that I am finally in a place in my life that I can say I have matured past these so called 'grudges' but truth is, I think I am just noticing how much of me I give up to such nonsense.

    But before any true healing can take place,I will have to learn to forgive myself. Forgive myself for being part of something I had no control of, but witnessed and under duress,due to military obligation, had to participate in.

    I have carried the water of others burdens for so long that, for me to truly enjoy life,I must forgive myself for no longer choosing to be the guardian of such memories.

    If we are lucky, I mean truly lucky, we come across an article, situation, or person that we can connect to without even knowing them personally or seeing them physically. Someone that can draw out our innermost conscious and help us face it out loud and for me it was this article.I thank you for your candor and being. May your days of 'change' be beautiful and fulfilling.
