How many of us find it hard to forgive someone? I can hear in my thoughts people saying (no I’m not hearing voices) “but if only you knew what he/she did to me you’d understand.” Well, maybe that is true. Its so easy to be bound up in the situation and not let go of the “hurt” and “anger” of the moment. Most of the time when the offender lashes out, they too are in pain.
How do we release ourselves from this? Speaking from experience, its so much easier to hang on to the bitterness, but that is only to keep us held captive to ourselves. The minute we release and forgive, we set ourselves “free”.
Actually the one that is hardest to forgive is the one who teaches us the greatest lesson. Its so much easier rising above the situation and loving ourselves enough to let go.
Have a rewarding day!
