Quotes To Live By

Hi, I’m Cathy Lunsford, Midland County Treasurer and member of the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition. A quote that encourages me is “Sometimes the only way to heal our wounds is to make peace with the demons who created them,” said by Dr. Serizawa in the movie “Godzilla: King of Monsters.” The reason I find this quote so meaningful is that it is a great lead into forgiveness. It helps me realize that when we hold on to grudges, anger, thoughts of revenge, feelings of hurt or being wounded, we are keeping the pain inside of us at our own cost. No matter the pain, you need to forgive. It is not easy, but by being empathetic, realizing others are struggling with their own battles, and having a better understanding for the cause may ultimately bring a feeling of being at peace with them or the situation. Being at peace with the “demons” will eliminate the control it has over you. This quote supports my wellbeing because through taking a deep breath, I can focus on the peace that comes over me when I tell myself “Forgive and let go”. So, if you find yourself in a situation where you feel hurt, try feeling empathy or forgiveness for the cause of that hurt. It will truly provide peace. This has been brought to you by the Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition's Quotes to Live By Series. Thank you for reading.
