I’m currently in a situation where forgiveness would allow me to move forward. But, I’m stuck and having a hard time forgiving because I don’t understand why it happened, it makes me angry, it indirectly hurting other folks and it’s counter productive.
I talk about kindness and forgiveness on my personal Facebook wall quite often, so at this time, I’m working on not just “Talking the Talk” but “Walking the Talk”.
THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS – AND WHY IT’S HARD https://www.powerofpositivity.com/
“The act of forgiveness may just be the single most powerful antidote for the pain caused by others.
Forgiveness does not mean that you “forget it and move on.” Nor does forgiveness mean that you absolve the person of their actions.
Forgiveness, instead, is choosing to compassionately release the desire to punish someone or yourself for an offense.
Yes, forgiveness is a choice. Yes, you can forgive yourself. But here’s the thing: while we may accept these statements on the surface, we often have trouble following through on the act of forgiveness – be it forgiving ourselves or someone else.”
