Too many of us are walking around carrying loads of un-forgiveness. Unwilling to understand that no amount un-forgiveness is good for the soul. It is true that while others may wrong you many times and never make situations right holding on to ill feelings will only keep you angry and unhappy inside. We all deserve to be given a fair opportunity to make things right, and many times the wrongdoer will avoid doing so. Remember that you hold the power within to forgive.
None of us is perfect. Forgiveness is never about the other person. Forgiveness is always about you. It is not the easiest to do at times, so it is truly a lesson in tolerance, mercy and grace. When we forgive we show that we are powerful and in control. We show others that love and grace rule and not anger and strife. Many believe that ignoring, or giving in is a sign of weakness, When really it is a sign of humility . Holding on to un-forgiveness can have an effect on your health. It causes stress that can lead to worse. Tomorrow is not promised, if today is all you had left, work to live it to your best ability. Forgive and know that you are forgiven. The person who allows such attitudes in his life becomes joyless and sour. His health suffers, as do his relationships. When we don't release our offended feelings, they will eventually control us.
