If we want to move forward in life, forgiveness is the way. Forgiveness heals the heart of the wounded. Forgiveness is expensive, but it is the best way to go. Choose forgiveness.
Forgiveness matters. It matters because it is the only way to freedom. You are not free when you are angry with someone. You are not free when you are angry with yourself. You are not free when you are angry with your boss, your manager, your neighbor, your spouse, your kids, your partner. You are not free.
“Forgiveness is the economy of the heart… forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.”- Hannah More
Forgiveness is freedom. It frees you from the ocean of your resentments. Look, life is too short to waste carrying around unnecessary anger. It is too short. Life is precious. We are here to enjoy our lives, not to blame. It is meaningless to do it. Don’t do it.
You cannot live your life and not get hurt. You cannot live your live without hurting someone. It is impossible. Whatever happens, forgiveness is always the answer. When you mistakenly hurt someone, pray for forgiveness. When someone hurts you, forgive that person and move on. Do not spend a single day getting bitter over yesterday’s issue. Let it go. Practice the art of letting go.
“Forgiveness is freedom. When you forgive, you are free. When you don’t forgive, you are not free. Forgive to free yourself.”
Remember this: “Forgiveness is not about them; it is about you.” When you forgive people who hurt you, you are not forgiving them, you are forgiving yourself. Because you are setting yourself free from the prison of resentments. When you let go of anger, you are healing your health, your soul, your life, your creativity, your relationships. The art of forgiveness is a blessing to your soul, to the world, to your friends, to your Creator. Learn to forgive. Forgiveness heals. Anger kills.
Forgiveness heals. Are you ready to start healing yourself?
