This is healthy self-confidence. This is taking good care of ourself. This is saying, “bye, bye” to guilt. Only then can we take good care of others. How do we do it? Before we can clear our hurts, we must recognize them and be willing to let go of them.

We have become so familiar with them like a constant companion and become complacent. It is time to stand up! It is time to let them go. Seize the day, seize the moment!
