Petsani also uses #WednesdayWisdom to remind people to have boundaries while living in kindness. @HarryPetsani tweeted, “Everyday isn’t just an opportunity to move forward, it’s an opportunity to separate yourself from the entanglements of your past. The ability to free yourself from the control and manipulation of others is life altering.”

Additionally, forgiveness seems to be a common theme on #WednesdayWisdom. Posts often advocate for the benefits of forgiveness, and for people to work on improving that skill. Neela tweeted, “Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.”
