The Art of Forgiveness

A grudge damages the soul, impales the body and afflicts the mind. The only purpose served by holding on to resentment, is to entangle yourself in a web of continuous demoralization, it is absolutely useless. There will always be individuals who come into your life to cause disappointment.

Every time you are hurt by someone, especially someone you care about and hatred forms, you take away from yourself a peaceful mindset. The sole aim of anyone who wishes to cause you some sort of pain, is to keep you in a state of unhappiness because they are unhappy themselves. They should not be given the satisfaction.

It is easy to say “just let it go,” but truly forgiveness is a work in progress, it takes time and effort. In the end though, forgiving is not only meant to let bygones be bygones, what it essentially does is give you freedom to live each day without constant worrying and stress. It is not possible to live at your best with the weight of animosity resting upon your shoulders, forgiveness is the key.

  1. It's easier said than done, but it's true. We should not allow ourselves to get hurt. It's just how we deal with it. In order not to get hurt, we should always think that we love ourselves more than anybody else does and most of all GOD LOVES us.

    We should always be ready to forgive those who hurt us to free us from any feelings of hate and by doing so, we will have peace of mind and feel the real happiness.

    I have been in a situation that I don't want to forgive, but thanks GOD I changed. Now I feel true happiness because I free myself from any feelings of hate.

    The love of GOD for us is the most important because HE created us and HE is the only the one who can understand our feelings. Good wishes.
