A True Story of Forgiveness
When I was 17, my best friend stole my boyfriend. Yes, it’s true!
I have been listening to the Tapping World Summit all week and during one session, I focused on healing a current relationship with a dear friend.
When I asked, as we are encouraged to do, when I’ve felt this hurt in the past, I zoomed back in the space of awareness to being 17 years old.
I was a senior in high school, having a wonderful time. I loved school, I was dating a terrific guy – we’ll call him Mike. My best friend – we’ll call her Jane – and I would go often to Huntington Beach and life was good.
Then, suddenly I wasn’t hearing from Jane or from Mike. My heart was broken. I was hurt, confused and lonely. Didn’t celebrate my graduation or enjoy the summer with my friends. Very painful time of my life.
When I connected with this memory, I realized that I’ve had a pattern of friends disappearing out of my life for years. I thought this related to the loss of my relationship with my mother – and perhaps it did relate.
Now that I have clarity about this pattern and the event that may have set the pattern in motion, I can tap on the memory, forgive my former best friend and heal the pattern of loss in my life. Ahhhh…
