ot forgiving and holding a resentment is like having a wound which we check everyday.
To see if it is healing.
Everyday we open it up to look and sure enough it is not any better.
To heal from a wound we must stop checking on it everyday.
To heal from hurt we must stop reliving it everyday people.
Remember, forgiveness frees us.
It recaptures the energy that we giving away in sadness and anger.
The forgiveness choice is, " Do we want to be bitter or better."
Keep holding on to the pain and we will be bitter.
We can make the better choice.
Learn to let go and learn to be a forgiving person.
p/s :Spoken forgiving, no matter how heartfelt, works best when we do not demand the response we want. I mean that when we tell people we forgive them, we must leave them free to respond to our good news however they are inclined. If the response is not what we hoped for, we can go home and enjoy our own healing in private :)
