Are you haunted by something that happened in your past? Whether someone wronged you or you made a decision you regret, maybe you have anger or resentment. What you may not realize, is that powerful, self-destructive emotions like anger, hate and resentment can cause you to pay an incredibly high price. Forgiveness is the way to get your power back.
There is power in forgiveness. Forgiving the people who hurt you, even if they don't ask for it, is what yo do for yourself, not for other people. When you forgive, it doesn't mean that you approve of what's happened. Rather, it means that you're giving yourself permission to move on with your life.
Generally, forgiveness is a decision to let go of resentment and thoughts of revenge. The act that hurt or offended you may always remain a part of your life, but forgiveness can lessen its grip on you and help you focus on other, positive parts of your life. Forgiveness can even lead to feelings of understanding, empathy, and compassion for the one who hurt you.
Forgiveness doesn't mean that you deny the other person's responsibility for hurting you, and it doesn't' minimize or justify the wrong. You can forgive the person without excusing the act. Forgiveness brings a kind of peace that helps you go on with life.
