Forgiveness. What better way to release resentment, anger, and bitterness? It all sounds so easy until you actually have to forgive someone who did you wrong. Sure, forgiveness allows us to move forward and find peace within ourselves. It liberates us from the shackles of the past, allowing us to heal and grow. But it was hard. It was hard to dismiss how they have hurt you. It was hard to accept how their actions impacted your own life. It was hard to just sit there and let them get away.
But forgiveness is not about that. Forgiveness is not condoning or forgetting the harm caused but rather a conscious choice to let go of the negative emotions associated with the hurtful experience. It is a process of acceptance, and finding closure within ourselves. By forgiving, we release the emotional burden that weighs us down, allowing space for healing, growth, and emotional well-being. It is a gift we give ourselves, freeing us from the pain and empowering us to create a more fulfilling future.
By understanding the complexity of human nature, we develop a deeper sense of empathy towards those who have wronged us. It enables us to see their humanity and acknowledge that everyone is capable of making mistakes
