“Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.”
Has someone done something to you that seems unforgivable, a betrayal of sorts? They lied. They did something to make you lose trust in them. Maybe you’re at a place where you’re seeking revenge.
Avoid Seeking Revenge
In this moment, take a step back. Take time to heal. What’s been done in the past should have no power over the future or the present. It’s going to take more energy for you to hold this grudge rather than letting go of it. The person who hurt you has made their bed in regard to what will be returned to them for the pain they’ve caused.
Heal by Offering Forgiveness
Forgiving them and putting their fate, and your faith, in the hands of someone greater is the first step in the healing process. Cutting off their source of power over you will allow you to see change in your life. The pain from past relationships, jobs, arguments and discussions will not hinder your future success.
None of Us Are Innocent
We’re not perfect. We’ve all done things that have caused someone else pain. Be accountable for your actions and recognize your impact on the lives you touch. Maybe you’ve done something seemingly unforgivable. Forgive yourself! Focus on living life with positivism, which is both given and reciprocated by the people you surround yourself with.
On this Monday, start the healing process. Reclaim your time today! No one can hold you back from this process unless you give them the power. Be at peace in your life and at peace with the events of the past. Your future is so bright! Move forward in faith.
