“When you operate from a position of victimization, you come into the future with the toxic waste from the past.
“And because your commitment to the issue of offense is stronger than your commitment to moving ahead, the prosperity in your public life and private lives pays a huge toll. New relationships grind and sputter, new business deals hiss and jerk, suffering like a car being driven with the emergency brake still engaged. It isn’t that you don’t move forward, but the grinding of your reservations thwarts the creativity and vibrancy you were created to give.”
Let it Go, by J. D. Jakes, p 43, 45
