Imagine. Your hanging from a cliff. At the bottom waiting for you is sharp rocks, a pit of rattle snakes, DEATH. If you can be saved, waiting for you is your family, love and purpose (yes, we all have a purpose), LIFE! The only person in front of you is that person who hurt you so bad, talks about you behind your back, YOUR BIGGEST ENEMY. Chances are deep inside you’d probably rather fall then allow that person the satisfactory of saving you. Truth is, if faced with death, actually in the situation, WE would reach for any helping hand, even if it wasn’t quite genuine.
If your enemy was hanging from the same cliff and there was anything humane about you, you too would offer a hand. I mean we know karma is real and no one deserves to die and by letting someone die when you had the power to save them is only setting an appointment with karma herself. I mean I’m not saying you would enjoy saving them. If you are anything like me you would be mumbling under your breath, rolling your eyes, and second guessing your heroic attempts. These days I whisper to myself, it’s not about YOU, help them despite what they have put you through. This is a great example of BEing Magnanimous!
MAGNANIMOUS: Someone who is big hearted. A Person that can show an over-sized spirit by being noble or brave, or easily forgiving others and not showing resentment.
BIG WORD! BIG DEFINITION….Makes you a BIG PERSON!
I’m not saying you have to forget what was done to you. You don’t have to even be friends, but keeping ish going and allowing one to be an enemy is giving that person dominion over a part of you. Not healthy for many reasons. Unwanted or needed stress. Pain that won’t go away. Open wounds. The chance that you may someday need them and or they you.
You don’t see it now, but you never know. You don’t know why someone was brought into your life. Though it could have just been that season and their purpose was to teach you a lesson that your better than how they treated you or what they have done to you. What if they are scheduled for a new season to save you. Or vise-versa! We don’t know. We won’t know. I just know personally I don’t want to find out when it’s too late.
Okay so they did you totally wrong. It’s not okay but it is what it is. Forgive, let it go, move forward. BE Kind, BE Mature, BE In Control. Most of all BE Magnanimous. They might have f&^@ed up a part of your life, but you never know if their true purpose later is to save YOUR LIFE!
BElieve, BE Free, BE YOUtiful…BE!
