Forgiveness is one of the hardest things to do. When we lose someone special we grieve for that person, so perhaps when we have been wronged, we should also allow ourselves to feel the anger, we should also allow ourselves to feel the hurt.
The idea is that after a short time we are ready to move on, but not all of us will feel we’re ready. Sadly, some situations may seem less forgiving and therefore many of us hang on to resentment.
Perhaps we should be concentrating on the reasons behind why we might forgive. We must look at the circumstances behind the deed. But the act of forgiving is the same no matter the deed. When we learn to focus on kindness and gratitude we will let go of the anger and hurt that we feel.
The execution of forgiving someone can be hard, but not impossible, it’s important because the link between health and forgiveness is too great to ignore. When we forgive, we let go of anger and resentment and letting go of anger and resentment, allows us to heal, emotionally; physically and spirituality.
And forgiving someone doesn’t mean we condone their actions, or doesn’t mean they’re not accountable, but it does mean that we can move forward with our lives without holding on to anger or resentment.
That if we’re okay in our own lives we get to have a life. Holding on to anger and resentment sadly changes that.
