When is it time to forgive?

Wednesday May 1, 2019

Immediately! But that’s almost impossible in most situations.  Whatever you’re holding onto is impacting you and your well-being.  That pain and that anger that’s eating at you are not doing you any good.  Actually, it’s hurting you in more ways than you can imagine, or willing to admit.  Sometimes when you hold on to pain and betrayal instead of forgiving, you might think you’re hurting the people that caused you pain, when in reality, all it’s doing is damaging you!  By not willing to forgive, you are strapping yourself with strong heavy chains that weigh you down.  You build a cage of resentment and anger around you and trap yourself; you end up holding yourself back from healing and ultimately peace. 

It is not easy to endure pain inflicted by those closest to us but holding back is not doing anyone any good, especially you.  So today, if you are hurting, if you are angry, take a deep breath, and start the forgiveness process towards healing.  Forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting, it just means peace for you.  Forgiveness means taking control of your life instead of letting pain control you.  It is much easier said than done to “let it go” but try to find the best path for you to reach the healing you desire for yourself.  Remember, forgiveness is not about “them” it’s about you…so start taking care of YOU!
