Balance Your Emotions & Forgiveness Flows
You may have experienced times when you’ve been hurt, or feel angry toward someone close to you. They may have said something that devastated you, or performed some behavior without thinking, that triggered feelings of frustration and anger within…
And yet, you still hope to include them in your life.
The wisest thing to do, is to forgive whenever you have these experiences.
But forgiving often proves to be more challenging than you think!
Read these points about forgiveness to better understand why it’s best to forgive:
🎯 Refusing to forgive harms you more than the individual you’re upset with.
There’s an old saying about poison damaging the vessel in which it’s found and that saying applies here.
You’re not hurting the individual you refuse to forgive nearly as much as you’re damaging yourself. Consider the ongoing hurt feelings you’re compelled to hold on to.
🎯 Most grudges become bigger than we are.
They just seem to take over your entire existence. You may convince yourself, “I will push this individual into a little box in my mind and not think about them,” yet, you’ll soon find that to be impossible.
Others may bring up the individual’s name or invite them to a party that you’ll be attending. Then, you’re faced with the decision of whether to avoid the individual by cancelling your plans. Grudges grow. And the more you hold on to them, the more time and emotional energy it takes to keep them going.
🎯 Vengeance and resentment flourish in those who refuse to forgive.
Would you choose to feel hurt, angry, and resentful or peaceful and happy?
🎯Balance Your Emotions.
If you’re struggling to forgive, go over the entire incident in your mind. What did you say? How did you react? How did you end the exchange?
After you fully analyze the situation, further evaluate:
🤔 How does not forgiving serve your greater good?
🤔 How does not forgiving hold you back and not serve you?
😇 Express gratitude for all aspects of the situation and for not forgiving the other person.
Now analyze how it would feel to actually forgive the person:
🤔 How does forgiving serve you?
🤔 How would forgiving not serve you?
😇 Express gratitude for all aspects of the situation and forgiving the other person.
🎯 Now Forgive.
🙏 Forgiving allows you to release the pain.
Whenever you say, “I forgive you” to someone, you’re instantly freed from holding on to the grudge. You can now move on and live your life as peacefully as possible.
Carrying excess emotional baggage is something to be avoided if at all possible.
🙏 You can decide to be the “bigger” person.
You can tell yourself that you’ll forgive because it’s the “right” thing to do or because the Bible says so or for whatever personal reason you believe.
When you live by a particular set of morals and values, that little voice inside may insist that you be the one to forgive. Listen to it.
🙏 Forgiveness bears many fruits.
Although you may be unaware, the friend you forgive may realize the true error of their ways and decide to try harder to live a more caring existence. Or they may learn something about forgiving others and apply it in their life.
You may also enjoy many more wonderful times and events with those you forgave. Everyone wins when you forgive.
🙏 When you forgive, you’ll have lower blood pressure.
It’s a medically proven fact!
When you decide to live a more conscious mindful existence, you may have more room to forgive those who upset you. Realizing that forgiveness is in your best interest and the best interest of the other individual involved, you can move forward in a dynamic way and re-discover a bright more successful future.
The power of forgiveness is within you. Use it for your own greater satisfaction, contentment, joy and peace.🙏😇

CEO, Livelihood Spirit Balance
4 December, 2020
Dawn-Marie P. Dalsass, President of Livelihood Spirit Balance is a Stress Management Maven. She’s a Stress and Anxiety Expert for Middle Managers. She started her career in Corporate America while she was in high school and worked her way up the ranks finding herself in middle to upper management for most of her corporate career. She loved what she did but along the way she battled stress, anxiety and depression. When work and life were more than she could handle she planned her suicide in detail. Fortunately, she didn’t go through with it when she saw her 2 little boys on her way to get a knife with a plan to end it all. It was in that moment that she vowed to pull herself together and begin a new journey.
In 2015 she started her own business called Life Coach DM. After several years of working with clients, she realized that the majority of her clients were in middle management just like she was. She had helped most go from being stressed, anxious and / or depressed to being more balanced, aware and dynamic while guiding them on their own journey to achieve life goals including work life balance.
Dawn-Marie has since become a Certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide and teaches individuals how they too can annihilate the stress, anxiety and depression (aka S.A.D) that middle managers and working parents can face through a process called equilibration (the balancing of the mind and emotions) along with the healing benefits a deep connection to nature (both indoors and out) can bring to become fully balanced, aware and dynamic (aka B.A.D).
Through her own practice, Dawn-Marie discovered what she calls Livelihood Spirit Balance where how one lives their life is in alignment with their authentic self, their B.A.D Ass-self. With Livelihood Spirit Balance, Work Life Balance and everything else just falls into place.
Based on her years of work and client success stories, Dawn-Marie changed her business name to Livelihood Spirit Balance to align with her teachings, mission, vision and purpose.
Dawn-Marie offers online courses, personal and corporate development coaching, workshops and seminars. As the owner of Total Convalescence – Nature & Forest Therapy she also offers public and private Nature & Forest Therapy Walks.
Dawn-Marie is a:
- Certified Mindset Transformation Coach
- Certified Nature & Forest Therapy Guide
