Forgiveness Will Set You Free
What does forgiveness mean to you? For me personally its when someone does me wrong or they hurt my feelings, then I choose to not have resentment towards them or try to revenge. In life we have met so many people that might have hurt us or even the people around us. Have you noticed how so many people constantly fight among themselves? Family members or even husband and wife. So many relationships that are broken have never been fixed because of lack of forgiveness. We all have wounds from our past, be it from a loved one, colleague, teacher, coach or a random stranger. I know you might have been holding a grudge over what someone did to you. Its no use keeping that spiteful anger. Its not good for you at all.
You know when someone you love betrays you or breaks your heart, its the most painful thing ever. It shatters you inside out. I completely understand people that say “l will never forgive you” The pain is unbearable. As much as you would plan to revenge or get back at them, its actually more detrimental to you than to the person. Feelings of resentment and grudge cause so much tension in your body. Stress related diseases come from continuously dwelling on the past pain. You have to find it in your heart to leg go and let God. Its easier said than do you might say. Lets face it, you want a better life for yourself and inorder for you to perform at your best self, you have to forgive and let go of the negative feelings towards the person who has done you wrong.
Some of the benefits of forgiveness include; stress free life, less anxiety, glowing skin, less hostility and more freedom of thought. Usually when you are holding a grudge, subconsciously you become tense and vicious to almost anyone. Letting yourself free will help you focus on making yourself a better person. Ignore whoever it maybe so long you make sure you have a peace of mind. I remember growing up when my cousin and I would fight, my aunt would call us and make us hug by force. At that time, I would be so mad, she would be angry too but the min we hug we lighten up and few minutes after we would start playing together again. Forgiveness is indeed key to a much happier healthier life. You should try it. Forgive and forget.
