Key Takeaway After Reading the #BetweenLoveSeries (MAJOR KEY)
One Key Takeaway I want all of you to receive whenever reading a SAGE book is FORGIVENESS.
I mean really learning how to forgive, let go, and move on.
It's something I've been struggling with and I'm not afraid to admit it anymore.
It's also something surprisingly...I didn't realize I had been writing about all along in my books! Crazy right...but not all the way crazy.
People often say authors can find themselves through their characters. For me, I didn't believe that was true until as of recently.
My two main characters INDIGO and AIRIS, are direct reflections of who I am and where I've been. Though I haven't experienced the same physical events they've endured...the emotions INDIGO and AIRIS feel are very real.
The emotions they've experienced are the same emotions I have often experienced over the course of my life. Most of my emotions stem from problems within past and present relationships. Relations with my mother. Relations with my exes. Relations with my friends. Relations with MYSELF.
It's so important to love yourself above all else (read more about the importance of self-love here)...and I have been neglecting my state of happiness for the sake of others...
I'm at this point in my life that I don't want to continue down this road of pent-up anger, depression, stress, and emotions that drive me crazy. It's not good for me....so I'll be spinning out more blogs of my journey to letting go and finding my happy again. It'll be an extension of Indigo's blog (within the #BetweenLoveSeries books).
My hope is that you all continue this journey of forgiveness with me, and that it'll somehow influence you to do the same.
I hope you allow yourself to forgive, repeatedly and relentlessly. Allow yourself the capacity to hold no grudge. You have that power within you; it just takes strength and crags of courage to set that power free.
I hope you’re brave enough to do that.
I hope you keep forgiving no matter how hard it gets and I hope you keep forgiving regardless of the bottomless pits of hate you have to look away from. I hope you do it anyway because you will always deserve better than to staying stuck inside the sunken place sis.
My hope is that you forgive, like I will too, and gracefully; let go of the pain and hold on to its teachings.
I life you!
