I actually wrote “off” at the end of the title of this one, but deleted it because I didn’t want you guys to think I’d written an entire #ClarityGem about Taylor Swift.
Though now that I think about it, Taylor (talented ex-girlfriend & songwriter that she is) could probably stand to take this week’s #ClarityGem to heart, considering it’s all about what happens when you feel resentful, vengeful, and pissed off at someone …

THIS WEEK, WE WANT YOU TO KNOW:
APPLY IT TO YOUR OWN LIFE:
Sometimes, the only “proof” you have that someone hurt you is the wound they left behind. And if you allow it to heal by forgiving, forgetting, and moving on … the perpetrator might get to skip off and live their life guilt-free.
Why should they be allowed to do that!? So, we stay resentful. Mad. Frustrated. Vengeful. Bitter.
And of course, suffering gives us a really good excuse to stay in our comfort zone.
Because as long as they did that thing to us, we get to keep playing the “victim” card. Which is a convenient way to whine, complain, and talk about our past without ever taking action to change our future.
So, how are you hurting yourself by refusing to let go of old wounds?
TELL US HOW YOU TOOK ACTION:
Use #ClarityGems on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to share how you’re applying this week’s Gem to your own life, and to see how other people are being inspired.
WHAT #CLARITYGEMS ARE ALL ABOUT:
Sometimes it’s just better to avoid long blog posts and cut straight to the point!
Think of #ClarityGems as your weekly shake of the good ‘ole Magic 8 Ball … you never know what might bubble up, and how it might be exactly what you need to hear today.
And instead of just a beautiful, inspirational, and shareable image (which is a nice start), we’re giving you some quick thoughts about how to apply it to your life … because inspiration without action is pretty, but kind of anti-climatic.
Tweet it, share it on Instagram, or forward it along to someone who needs to hear it today … and tag us (@ClarityonFire) to let us know how this Gem applies to you!
