The word forgiveness means different things to different people.
For me, forgiveness is a huge part of maintaining a happy life. I once heard someone say that if we withhold forgiveness, it’s like allowing a snake to bite us over and over again.
It’s such a heavy burden to hold onto any negative thought patterns.
Practicing the art of letting go and releasing opens the door for more love to enter into our lives.
All the money in the world cannot buy peace; however, one way to start achieving peace is through forgiveness.
To me, forgiveness does not mean we have to force ourselves to forget what happened or that what happened is suddenly okay.
It simply means that we have made the decision to move forward without harboring bad feelings about it.
Trying to force ourselves to forget something won’t work, as you’ve probably noticed.
It just brings it to the surface more frequently.
Instead of trying to forget it, we can just allow it to move peacefully through our heart. We can recognize it without letting it become who we are.
In other words, we can let go and forgive. Ironically, when we forgive, we are giving a gift to ourselves.
To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.” ~Robert Muller
This too shall pass,
Forgive & Stay blessed forever.
