Forgiveness is a life lesson. What pains are you holding onto?
Forgiveness is a key lesson to learn. Forgiving someone is not for the other person, the point is for you. When you forgive someone, truly forgive them, you let go of the pain they caused you.
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “forgive and forget,” most people have. Although this saying is cliché, most get the meaning wrong. Do not forget what has been forgiven! The saying means to forget the pain that was caused.
When you forgive, you let go of pain, you don’t hold a grudge and most importantly, you don’t hold yourself back. Forgive yourself first.
Forgive yourself for all of your mistakes. No one is perfect. Then forgive others that have hurt you and let go of the pain they caused you.
Forgiveness is an important lesson and we all have to learn it for ourselves.
