"To be wronged is nothing..."

"To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it." Confucious

I have always had a long memory, and it is mine to own that oftentimes, it is of things that have wronged me. People, statements, looks....they are all in there. Scrambled brains or not, I sadly continue to remember them.

Until this year. Every year we give a "gift" to Jesus which is a fault of ours we want to get rid of. For several years, I have been giving Jesus my swear words, which I have failed miserably at, so this year, I have gone a new direction.

I am giving Jesus my hurt feelings. As many of them as I can give away. All the old ones, the most painful, and the ones in between.

I am not sure how to let go of them, or how to forget. This is my new year's resolution to try.
