Sometimes we spend time asking who is responsible or who to blame, whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know. We miss out some warmth in human relationship in giving each other support. After all, shouldn't forgiving someone we love be the easiest thing in the world to do? Treasure what you have. Don't multiply pain, anguish and suffering by holding on to forgiveness. This however does not mean that the wrong doer is to take it lightly and think that it is easier to get forgiveness than permission in doing wrong.

Holding grudges will consume your emotional energy...if you let it.  Holding grudges uses a lot of emotional energy. And, when your emotional energy is tied up in a grudge, it holds you in the past. Grudges hold you hostage and it's not until you forgive that your energy can be restored. Think of forgiveness as something you do for yourself. Think of it as something that makes you stronger, not weaker. The physical feeling of relief and the energy restored will be well worth it. When you forgive someone, you suddenly feel lighter....for the past is heavy, and when you let go of it, you're weightless.

Forgiveness is the only way to heal your emotional wounds. Forgive those who hurt you no matter what they've done because you do not want to hurt yourself every time you remember what they did. When you can touch a wound and it doesn't hurt, then you know you have truly forgiven.

If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unwillingness to forgive, selfishness, and fears and you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.

FORGIVENESS is not something we do for other people. We do it for ourselves.
