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.
