I hear so often; “I just can’t forgive them for what they did,” or “It is so hard to forgive them.” There are so many folk, including myself that at one time or another has said this same thing.
The reality of the thing is this; forgiveness really isn’t for the other person’s benefit, but for our benefit. They gain nothing from our forgiveness, except maybe a little peace of mind, but the benefits for the forgiver are out of this world. Blue Cross Blue Shield don’t have a health care plan as good as the plan of forgiveness. Holding back our forgiveness causes us stress, anger, resentment, hatred, and various other bad emotions. These negative emotions lead to heart problems, mental problems, many emotional problems to many to mention. When we forgive we release the stressors that have attached themselves to us. Forgiving gets easier when we practice it continually, until it becomes a lifestyle, it becomes natural. Enjoy the benefits of forgiveness today! Your heart and mind never had it so good!
