Forgiveness-More Important Than You Realize

 

“Be the one who nurtures and builds. Be the one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them.” ― Marvin J. Ashton

The first thing most of us think about when it comes to forgiving someone is forgiving something big…something very hurtful. While we need to get ourselves to a place to do that, we need to start by looking at how unforgiving we may be with the little things. Think about the last time someone cut you off while driving, or took the parking space you were patiently waiting for. Or how about the constant provocations brought on by close family members and friends? These continual moments in our lives that elicit feelings of anger and resentment within each of us can accumulate and canker our souls if not quickly discarded. The only true way to eliminate those feelings is to forgive. Forgiveness heals the forgiver. Have you been able to forgive?

Want to be healthy and happy? Be quick to forgive and move forward.

“The quality of mercy is not strain’d. It droppeth as the gentle rain from Heaven upon the place beneath.It is twice blest: It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.” ~William Shakespeare
