Reunited… beautiful, forgiveness

The last couple weeks have been a buzz with rumours of CBrown and Rhi Rhi getting back together. I guess all the secret rendezvous’  and awkward club encounters were really, all about the music….

So in the last 18hrs both Brown and Rhianna have released remixes to tracks off their latest albums, and both remixes feature each other.

Confused let me explain. Rhianna’s Birthday Cake remix was first and features a crooning Brown talking about missing intimate moments, life imitating art (perhaps)???



Then, this morning Brown released the remix to Turn up the music featuring, you guessed it, Rhianna.

Listen to R&B Pick: Chris Brown f. Rihanna.

So what does this all mean… They forgave each other, or more appropriately, she forgave him. Before we start crucifying either of them for their choices, let us all remember the power of forgiveness.

Last week I was lucky enough to sit in on an interview with Salimah Kassim-Lakha ambassador for LuLu Lemon and Yoga teacher. She mentioned the power of forgiveness and went as far to say:

“Cancer is pent up rage, and diabetes is repressed grief”

Both those strong emotions centre around our ability to forgive others.

Forgiveness doesn’t have to mean allowing someone to mistreat or take advantage of you, it simply means you release them from controlling an aspect of your being. You release your self from the responsibility of bearing or carrying the pain.

As long as you harbour resentment and sorrow, you allow the other person to control a  part of you.

Tara Muldoon with the Substance Group has brought the art of Forgiveness to the Hiphop community of Toronto. Her event called F-You: The Forgiveness Project  features 6 speakers giving their take on forgiveness related to a wide array of topics and issue.

Muldoon once tweeted she was inspired to start the F-You project after a hard break-up.

Forgiveness is good for the soul. so instead of getting up in arms about Chris and Rhianna singing together, look in your own life for people you might owe a debt of forgiveness too.
