I have found that one thing that keeps us from the forgiveness of others is the belief that we are not the one who receives the benefit from forgiveness. We tend to think of it as giving up or giving in. Think about this for a minute, “Does the person we have not forgiven suffer because we refuse to forgive?”
As we hold onto our grudges we become slaves to the very people that we refuse to forgive. We all know someone who keeps a list of people who have done them wrong and their grievances and they are very happy to share it with anyone who will listen. Many times they share it with those who are not so willing to listen.
Have you ever been trapped, almost forced to listen to someone go on and on about how they had been done wrong or taken advantage of? Let’s all do a little self-inventory. Are we sometimes “that” person? If the answer is yes, then it’s time to let go and give ourselves the gift of forgiveness.
Forgiveness is the anti-venom for some of the most poisonous emotions known to man. The twin emotions of resentment and hatred are very detrimental to our well being. It has been said that as much as 80% of our illnesses come from unresolved resentments, which reside as trapped emotions in our bodies that turn into “dis-ease” and cause us health problems or illnesses.
Do you want to feel happier? Would you like more peace in your life? Do you want better and more meaningful relationships? Do you want to be healthier? Do you want to feel better about yourself? Do you want to take the burdens off your shoulders? Forgiveness is the key! Don’t just try to forget it and stuff all those negative feelings and emotions. You need to actually speak the words and say “I forgive (say the person’s name) for (specify why you are forgiving them).” Please do not call the person up and tell them you are forgiving them! Believe me, most of them don’t care and seriously, most do not even know they have offended us or even remember what they may have said or done.
Go back and look at “The Grudge Hook”. Who do you imagine is on that hook with you? Are you ready to let them off? You’ll be amazed at how much lighter you feel when you do not drag your past around with you. Forgiveness of others and the true forgiveness of ourselves is one of the most powerful tools that we have available to us.
