What do you Think?

The positive cycle of forgiveness

"OK, be honest. Do you hold grudges? Do you allow old drama to determine your behavior? Is there someone you just can't seem to forgive? Grudges and a non-forgiving attitude do nothing but harm both parties. You might feel like you're "winning" by not letting someone off the hook, but you're only increasing your own worry and stress. Bitterness can lead to hate, which can sour a life. Today, write a letter explaining your point of view to the person you feel resentful towards. Clear the air; forgiving him. Even if you don't send it, it is an excellent way to relieve tension. Forgiving someone does not absolve them of the wrong that you experienced. It can simply free you to live a life that isn't anchored to the hurt and resentment of past events."

Okay now tell me what you think about this!

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog! I try my best not to hold grudges but I am also not one to forgive and forget if I have been truly wronged. I can think of 2 instances in my life - two people that I wish no harm but that I am not sure I will get over. That said there is no drama around those situations (now).
