At some point in your life you may be in a position of feeling wronged by someone. If someone can spark a negative emotion that can ruin your day, if it’s not constructive in helping you move forward be it anger, resentment, frustration, hurt or sadness, that someone has power over you, to take back that power you face the challenge of forgiveness.

What is forgiveness?
Forgiveness is a commitment to a process of taking back the power. It is a decision to let go of resentment and emotional trauma connected to an event or set of events. It is something that you do for yourself not for the other person. The focus is on you and how you wish to respect and honour yourself and learn to happy. Letting go of emotional pain is difficult. However, forgiving someone can be hugely liberating and brings about better health with less stress and anxiety. It can bring about a sense of healing with new perspectives on many things. Forgiveness can reduce symptoms of depression and bring about greater spiritual and psychological well-being.

Forgiveness puts you in control. With that control you can also make decisions about how and when you move forward for a stronger better you. You will still remember what happened but no longer be bound and controlled by it. It will no longer be able to control the way you feel. Which will enable you to keep smiling and move forward on your own journey to success.

  1. Sometimes it is better said than done, I totally agree though my heart could not forgive, in time when pain is healed will let forgiveness alone forget.

  2. Hello Alan – Love your tagline “Don`t let anybody make you cruel”! Life can be harsh enough without allowing people to be hard on us too. Wanted to stop by and say thanks for the follow on I Write Her. I appreciate it and hope you enjoy my thoughts. 🙂
