Honestly, when it comes to forgiveness, nobody wants to hear a theoretical point of view. It has to come from experience. So if I would ask you, if you have been hurt before and had to forgiveness someone, your answer would probably be yes. And the truth is we all have been hurt and disappointed by people and we either held on to the pain or we chose to let it go and forgive. But what does it really mean "forgive"?
I believe that forgiveness is letting go of all the negative emotions that someone might have caused you through their words or actions. Letting go of the pain, the hurt, the disappointment and the anger and even the thought of revenge. Because most of the time we wish them the same pain they might have caused us. But once you forgive, you truly let go of all the negative feelings toward that person and you give it up. To God. Honestly, I believe he is the one that can help you let go of the hurt you kept in your heart for many years. Because the origin of forgiveness is divine.
Some might ask, isn't forgiveness a decision? Yes, it is. But it's also a process. It takes time before the full effect of it becomes visible. Every single time when negative emotions arise, you have to decide to let it go, until their are no negative emotions anymore. That's work. But it's worthit. It's for your own heart. And only people who are strong on the inside are able to do it.
Forgiving someone is not a sign of weakness but it's the most powerful thing you can do, to protect, heal and free your own heart. So do yourself a favor and forgive. Especially when the person that did you wrong is not even sorry. Don't let them rob you of your freedom, your peace and your joy. Live your best life by letting it go, once and for all. Because we all at some point, if we know it or not have hurt someone before or did someone wrong and needed their forgiveness. Nobody's perfect nor will we ever be. So if you want to have any good and lasting relationships in life or you want to be able to move on from your past, learn to forgive and let it go.❤️
