“What’s done is done. There is no need to speak to Edmund about what has passed.” – Aslan from “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”
I was watching this movie recently and heard these lines and they really stuck out to me.
In the movie, Edmund’s character had just made it back after committing an act of treachery. Aslan gave him a “talking to” and then told everyone else the lines above.
We all need someone who can give us the stern talking to when we’ve stepped out of line.
But that isn’t what really stuck out to me.
What stuck out to me in particular was the idea of letting the past be the past. No need to talk about it again.
From both perspectives.
If we are the one needing forgiveness, to let things go and move forward. Not to dwell on our mistakes but to learn from them and move forward.
If we are the ones forgiving, to not bring it up again. To let our loved ones grow and move forward from their past.
Let go of past transgressions. What’s done is done. No need to speak of it again.
Make it a great day.
