It is only when we lose someone special, we grieve for that person and then come to realise what that really means. Perhaps we need to allow ourselves to feel what we feel. It’s okay to feel anger, we should allow ourselves to feel the hurt.
When we lose someone, others may expect us to move on, but not all of us will feel we’re ready. Sadly, some situations seem less forgiving and therefore we may hang on to resentment.
Perhaps we should be concentrating on the reasons behind forgiveness. Look at the circumstances behind the deed. The act of forgiving is the same no matter the deed.
Forgiving doesn’t mean we condone another person’s 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. Although the act of forgiveness is hard, it’s not impossible.
Is forgiving someone important? We can still let go of the anger and resentment through understanding, and through our understanding we can heal, spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally.
