How many times have you walked away from a situation waiting for someone else to apologise after having crossed words? In the bigger scheme of things, by making the first move, you’ll know that you were the adult in the relationship and you took back control.
Learning to forgive, without holding resentment and bitterness is the first step to personal growth and becoming at one with yourself. If you can’t forgive, letting go of feelings that hurt you will allow you to lead a more peaceful life.
Shake off the negativity and remember that forgiving someone doesn’t mean that you condone the other person’s actions. You may not forget, but it means you’re no longer going to let what they did control your every thought. It’s important for us not to let anger eat away at our emotions.
And so long as your conscience is clear, it doesn’t matter what the other person thinks. What matters is what you think.
