At some point in our lives, all of us have felt mistreated by another person, a relative, a boss, a colleague or a friend. We felt hurt, angry or resentful. This is a natural reaction and part of being human. However, if we leave this issues unresolved or fail to come to terms with it, it will drive our actions and bring negativity to our lives.
Forgiving does not mean forgetting or condoning what happened, or assuming the fault; nor is it condemning the other person or seeking justice or compensation. Forgiveness is letting go of the resentment, no longer seeking revenge.
Forgiving will allow us to get on with our lives and to open up our minds and hearts to new ways of seeing others, the world and ourselves. It releases energy that can be used for other, more productive thoughts and actions.
“When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power.”
