Anyone can hold onto anger and resentment or hold a grudge against someone. But it takes a person with special strength, compassion, and kindness to practice forgiveness. When we forgive, we release ourselves from a heavy and painful burden.
Having said that, forgiveness doesn’t mean that what happened was OK, and it certainly doesn’t mean that the person who caused the hurt should still be welcomed in our lives. It simply means that we have made a choice to make peace with the past and are ready to let go and move on !
Forgiveness does not change the past “ but it most certainly does change the future.
Namaste my loves !
