I look around and see many of us not living and evolving and creating our best stories today but continue to rehash old stories of the past. Yes these stories keep us connected to what has happened, but honestly it may be time to let go.

You need to see that your partner has suffered too, not from your anger, but from the weight of his or her own actions. If you believe your partner deeply regrets his actions, knows he was wrong, and even feels he violated his own personal standards, you will feel more trusting and open to forgiveness.

It took me a long time to learn that my self-consciousness is a signal of the judgment inside of me; I think you're judging me because I've judged for the same reasons. Through social norms or because of my very own judgy gene, I deemed xyz as unacceptable. I can't escape it. We're all judgmental and will be for all the evers. Maybe it's baked into our DNA?

Still Holding On to Anger About an Ex? Let it Go

I am friends with all my exes! Many people find this very strange. Many years ago I had an extremely bad break up, and because there was so much hurt between us we decided to not speak.

If there is an ex in your life whom you feel anger towards or cannot speak to them, let them go.

One of my childhoods was happy. The B&W movies projected on our small TV screen, more often than not, contradicted the drama I was living in my own home movie reels. But there were exceptions. In fact, the images of our television's B&W movies were very real to me. Sidney Poitier was one of those images, and thankfully, he made repeat appearances.

If someone has to force themselves to forgive in order to meet someone else's expectations, they'll be more tormented than if they'd held onto their hurt. A better solution would be to learn how to let go.

The Redefined MD

Good doctors exercise judgment. They make the call and -- right or wrong -- live with the consequences and learn from them. The redefined MD is flawed, but comfortable inside their own skin. When you get to that place, you can like yourself in spite of your mistakes.
