“We have all done something that we regret or have been hurt by someone else. Holding grudges and wanting revenge solves nothing. It traps us in a cycle of anger and resentment. Learning to forgive others is not only beneficial for the other person, but it allows you to heal and releases you from a perpetuating cycle of blame. Forgiving does not mean you need to forget what has been done. But it does allow both parties to move on in their lives. Forgiveness does not depend on both you and the other person forgiving simultaneously. The sooner you forgive or accept forgiveness from others, the sooner you can begin to heal.”
The Angels ask: Do you believe that you or another person is not deserving of forgiveness? Do you hold on to blame and resentment?
Tell yourself: I am able to heal myself from a place of forgiveness. I forgive myself and all those who have done me harm. (pg. 46)
To practice forgiveness is a concept that many are unable or unwilling to try. This week you are being asked to think about what forgiveness means to you and examine how well you give and receive forgiveness.
“It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody.”~Maya Angelou
