The Power of Forgiveness

Forgiveness brings us closer to the people that hurt us. Forgiveness converts our anger and hurt into healing and peace. It increases our ability to love as it sets us free from the pains of the past.

When you forgive the people that hurt you, you set yourself free from the situation. Holding onto resentment will only eat you up from the inside.

Most times people believe that holding onto unforgiveness punishes the offender and not the offended; but the truth is, the offended also suffers due to their unwillingness to forgive move on with their life. The offended will keep holding onto that pain for as long as they can, and it will keep them trapped in the past.

There is no letting go of the past until you forgive the people that hurt you. There is no point imprisoning yourself for someone’s wrong deeds. Learn to forgive.

No one is perfect.

We all make mistakes. No one can truly say that they haven’t offended anyone before, whether intentionally or unintentionally. The fact that we make mistakes proves that we are human and not perfect.

We all have our shortcomings. Whenever you are in a position to forgive, don’t harden your heart. Hardening your heart will only give anger a dwelling place in your heart. Anger shouldn’t have a place in your heart because it will cause more harm to your health.

No one is perfect. As we learn to forgive the people that wronged us, we set ourselves free of pain and self-guilt. Sometimes we blame ourselves for getting hurt by someone we thought would never hurt us. We blame ourselves for loving and caring too much and getting hurt in return. You don’t need to be resentful if you want to heal from the past. You need to learn to forgive.

Forgiveness is the final form of love.

It is human nature to become angry and resentful towards the people that hurt us. Forgiveness conquers the ill feeling of resentment and vengeance for the offender’s wrong deeds and helps us walk in the path of love. Forgiveness softens our hardened heart and gives us peace of mind. It doesn’t matter the gravity of the offense that was done to you, forgive so that you can move on with your life.

Love always wins. Don’t stop loving someone because of their wrong actions. Keep loving and caring for them, for it will encourage them to become a better person. Forgiveness is the final form of love.

Forgiveness helps us let go of the past.

Sometimes when we decide to forgive the people that hurt us, we still feel anger and resentment lingering within our hearts. Sometimes we still find ourselves holding onto the past after choosing to forgive and let go of the situation. You should know that it is truly possible to forgive and let go of the pains of the past. It is possible to learn to forgive someone regardless of their offense, even though it may seem impossible.

Forgiveness is a learnable skill that can be improved with practice over time. Practice forgiveness. Be quick to forgive others regardless of their misdemeanor. As we forgive those that wronged us, we are able to receive forgiveness from the people we have wronged. Always remember that no one is perfect.
