One of the biggest challenges, and most dangerous pitfalls, in relationships today is the confusion between being important and being a priority. We all have people that are important to us, and that we’re important to, but that next level relationship involves being a priority to the other person.

One of the common desires that people experience in their life is summed up as a well-known saying – “I want to thrive, not just survive.” This can also be interpreted as enjoying life as opposed to simply existing.

Right now, at this very moment – what do you want? Empty your feelings onto a sheet of paper and review it later.

Hanging on to pain, bitterness and disappointment from a past conflict is a heavy burden. It affects your moods, attitudes, relationships, job and all aspects of your life. Negativity eats away at your self-esteem and destroys any possibility of a life free from pain.
Hanging onto past negativity isn't necessary. No matter what your history contains, you can learn to release it and move forward into a life filled with contentment and joy.
The best way to move forward is to forgive the past. If you can't change the past, you might as well learn to accept it and move on. You'll be glad you did once you see just how bright your future can be when you regain control of your life.
Make the conscious decision, today, to live your life free from pain and resentment.
