Forgiveness

     " I CAN HAVE PEACE OF MIND ONLY WHEN I FORGIVE RATHER THAN JUDGE."  -GERALD JAMPOLSKY-

 

    What is forgiveness? Forgiveness is that moment where you are personally able to no longer feel resentment towards another person due to their actions. When we are able to recieve an apology from a person we can decide to putthe feelings and emotions behind us. This shows us that we are able to realize that people are more than just their mistakes.

    Without forgiveness we cut ourselves off from others. When was the last time you forgave someone? Maybe it was a friend who accidentally broke something of yours. Did you forgive them? Forgiveness can show a friend that their friendship is worth more to you than a material good. Now, when was the last time someone forgave you? Did their forgiveness make you feel better? Imagine if no one ever forgave anyone for anything. Our relationships would be severly strained causing more harm than good.

    "THE WEAK CAN NEVER FORGIVE. FORGIVENESS IS THE ATTRIBUTE OF THE STRONG."-MAHATMA GANDHI-

    Saying, "I forgive you," can be dificult. Sometimes, people think it will make them look weak if they forgive. They might think, "If I forgive this person, then I'm saying that I think they're right. If I forgive them, it means that I'm saying that what they did was okay." You can forgive someone and still be hurt. Forgiveness is about giving yourself the strength to move on, however you need to.

    Imagine that you are holding a burning red-hot coal in your hands. Would you hold onto it or let go? Youd let go of course. Your hand may still hurt for a while, but as long as you're not holding the coal anymore, they can start to heal. Holding on to anger is like holding onto that hot coal. When you can forgive the thing that made you angry you can let go of it and start to heal.
