The hurt is going to be temporary, so give yourself time to heal and to forgive.

Three of Swords

Your tarot card for today is the Three of Swords.

The Three of Swords is a very powerful card that you can get in your reading. It is a symbol of heartbreak, loss, and change in emotions. It shows clouds, rain, and three swords that have been stabbed into a heart. Hearts are symbols of all that is good in life, like love and compassion. They also show how warm and fuzzy things are in the world.

All of us feel hurt and pain when we go through bad times in our lives. The three swords that pierce this heart are a way to show that. It looks like dark clouds are gathering in the background, but they also give you hope that, just as the storm clouds will fade away, so too will your pain and hurt.

We are all victims of betrayal, abandonment, abuse, and hurt. The issue is, what happens next? When people reach out to us, do we cringe every time they do? Do we try to understand how the wound came about and show compassion for the person who hurt us? Do we utilize it to gain strength or do we make it as an excuse to remain weak?

Things will get better.

It doesn't matter what's going on in your life, you're sure to be hurting inside in one way or another. You can look at the bright side because this pain is only going to last a short time. You will heal as long as you choose the path of healing. Think of it as a time when you're going through a change.

Everyone has bad times in their lives, but they usually lead to a lot of personal growth, so they're worth it. Keep in mind that this pain won't last forever. Things will be fine when the sun comes out again and things will be lighter when you have healed enough to have the space to forgive.

To get back on the right track in life, you need to take a step back and think about why you failed. You will soon be able to start walking down the path of life again with a firm and determined step. You become who you are because of the pain you feel. Do not get lost in the storm, and try to keep your eyes on the future at all times.

Practicing forgiveness allows you to let go.

The more you forgive, the more you can let go of the negative energy that you have inside of you, so you don't have to carry it around all the time. Everyone who doesn't forgive is deciding to keep all the poison inside of them for another day.

Holding on to anger is like taking a lethal dose of poison and then expecting someone else to die because you are angry. Think about how people who don't forgive each other end up in war and conflict in the world right now.

This doesn't mean that you should let someone else do bad things. Forgiveness does not mean that you have to let them. It doesn't mean you should meet up with your friend and pretend that everything is fine. It’s less about them and more about you: This is how it should be.

Accept that you kept this garbage for so long and that it’s time for you to stop. Moving on with your life without being weighed down by the past is only possible if you forgive the person that hurt you.

Just for today, try letting go of any people or things that make your heart feel heavy. A lot of times, forgiveness is hard to get right away, and it's not always easy to find. It's time for major healing to happen for you right now. Rising from the clouds, let your heart soar above them and into the light.
