Mountain of Peace and Prosperity

“If you are still angry at the person who hurt you, if you haven’t been able to forgive, then you are chained to that person. When someone offends you and you haven’t let go, every time you see (or think about) the one who has hurt you, you grow breathless or your heart skips a beat. If the trauma was really severe, you dream of revenge. Above you, is the ‘Mountain of Peace and Prosperity’ where we all want to go. But when you try to climb that hill, the person you haven’t forgiven weighs you down. It’s a personal choice whether or not to let go. No one can tell you how long to mourn a wrong. But you can’t move forward until you break that chain.” ~Leymah Gbowee, Liberian Peace Activist
