Hiiiiii! Thanks for always coming back! I am glad you’re here to read my next post, by the way I hope you’re staying safe?
Today’s post is about Forgiveness and why you should forgive? Holding a grudge isn’t the best way to live life, you should forgive people and let go.
You can’t change anyone except yourself, learn to forgive even yourself when necessary.
A lot of people move around holding grudges against one another. The funny thing is some people don’t even know they messed with you and you are angry at them. If you don’t make it known that someone hurt you, they may never find out. Why don’t you make it easy for them by letting it go. If you would find peace by talking to them about it then proceed or better still talk to someone else to lift the burden and be at ease, so you can be free.
When you hold grudges against people and don’t learn the act of forgiveness you imprison yourself, you get lost in yourself and only forgiveness can help you find yourself.
The moment you’re lost, it takes a while to find you within you.
There was a moment in my life that my friend got me angry, hurt my feelings and realized, but never asked for forgiveness. I was waiting for the apology which never came but I was also in guilt and I convinced myself I wasn’t at fault.
So you need to know that some people will know they hurt you but would not ask for forgiveness so you should not wait for them and just let it go if not it will keep eating you up.
I am a victim, even I find it hard to forgive myself when I have done something really bad, the fact that I realized it and can’t get my self to even think about the moment is self destructive.
Until I was able to defend my self and explain vividly to myself that it’s not my fault and I would have done it a better way, then I was able to forgive myself. The moment I did, I was free and trust me the feeling of freedom is unique. So when you realize you hold no grudge against no one and not even yourself, you would be different and it is amazing. So I want you to experience this too by learning to forgive.
If you hold a grudge for too long, you kill yourself with guilt, pain, depression and overthinking. This are not healthy for you, they make you feel unprotected.
When you forgive, you become brand new, you become the boss. You are not forgiving them because you feel it is necessary but because it is worth doing. You are forgiving them because it makes you a better person, it makes you whole and gives you a fresh breath. You owe yourself that much.
Indira Ghandi says “Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave” Are you brave enough to let go and move on? I ll leave you to answer that.
I hope you learn to forgive sooner than later. I am not an expert at forgiving but I try my best to clear the air and do what is right because it makes me a better person.
