I agree and it is a hard lesson to learn, but worth the knowledge.
Actually, forgiving others is so much easier than forgiving yourself; forgiveness is more than just 'getting over it'. Holding it in destroys you.
Some people just find it difficult to forgive whether others or themselves.
great advice jaydene - I recently told a family member their anger about something I did more than 10years ago was like a poison - their facts weren't even right. but anger for some people is like energy unfortunately!
This is a great way of seeing forgiveness. thank you for your answer.
It's you taking on the hurt of releasing them. this hurt will pass, and a lot faster than if you were to just hold on to it.
We can never really change someone unless they allow us.
Absolutely. Great answer!
This is not cheesy at all. It's faith that keeps us strong.
That doesn't sound cheesy at all. God created all of humanity in His likeness and image (Genesis 1:26-27), so as God is in character and attitude, He made us to be as well. Why hold bitterness when it is so much better to forgive?
Bitterness is definitely a heavy burden to carry.
Prayers do clear the mind.
If we only have an open heart to let God enter, we can easily forgive people.
Think of how badly Jesus hurt in order to forgive humanity for breaking the Law of God and offending Him. Christ forgave us after everything we did to Him so none of us has no excuse to be bitter and resentful.
This is a very interesting point Seen N find. We do have a choice. Whether to forgive or not, to carry the burden or not. Thank you for your answer.
Such a beautiful answer. I like the idea of an imperfect person forgiving another imperfect person. I will keep this in mind. Thank you.
Thank you for your honest answer. Some forgive easily while others don't.
This is a wonderful point Sri T. No one is perfect. We need to realize that we have our own faults.
I appreciate the answer. Thank you.
Patience and self restraint are what many people need. Thank you for sharing your faith with us.
Thank you duffsmom. We choose to stay in anger or move on. It's our choice.
We are all imperfect. :)
