The Power Of Forgiveness.

Written By Lawson Elijah. on Sunday, 20 August 2017 | August 20, 2017

''Discontent, Contempt, Self-Pity, Complaints, cannot Serve as a foundation for a good future, no matter how much effort you make.'' - Eckhart Tolle.

 Not everyone can forgive, but anyone can. It's as simple as that. Therefore I need you to ask yourself if you really do forgive, deep down within you, you should be able to provide the answer.
Harbouring grudges is easy-at least for some-, Forgiving the person is much easier-Maybe if you learn to let go.-If you fall in this category-Unforgiving Type-, this Article is specifically for you.
    After this Article, I hope you get to understand that Grudges are like caterpillars. All they do is drain strength from you and help implant hatred towards whoever upset you.
 However, if you're struggling with forgiveness and feel like giving up, hold still! Forgiveness is a process you will need a lot of patience to acquire it.
  Now, I'm going to share with you a topic tagged ''The Power Of Forgiveness.'' That's what Forgiveness is capable of doing.

    First things first, we take a look at what forgiveness really means.

                                        Meaning Of Forgiveness.

 We have First,  Forgiveness means ceasing to feel resentment against somebody or something.
And then,  Forgiveness is an intentional process which an individual undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offence, by letting go of negative reactions with an increased ability to wish the offender well.
I like the second definition more. It touches exactly what REAL forgiveness is meant to be, Alongside Reconciliation.

                                       Power Of Forgiveness.

Forgiveness is totally life Changing. You won't know the quantity of  'burden' you carry until you release them. Grudges occupy a large chunk of your heart refusing to move if *you* let them in. As soon as you learn to forgive, you get to be more relaxed around people and yourself too.

Peace Maker. Forgiveness is a ''peace maker.'' You really need to know that forgiveness is not about anyone else as much as it's about you. Unforgiveness Causes you to suffer in Silence -If there's no therapist around.- or lament and become a burden to someone else. Everyone wants peace, but what can we do if ours is trampled upon? Forgive And Move on! Really difficult for starters but it's worth it the price!

*You do not need any apology. Forgiveness is ''Letting go from the heart.'' Do you know this is much easier to accomplish while you Seek Solitude? Yes, it is. Sometimes the person who offends you may or may not know he did so, or even be around for a heart- heart talk. So you'll need to forgive and let go to open your heart and mind to the brighter side of life. :)

*It's Healthy! Yes, Forgiveness contributes to the development of your health. It helps reduce Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Anger and lots more! I see no reason why you wouldn't love that.

*It's Self Development. So, I said earlier that Forgiveness is a process. A process to self-development. A process to letting go. A process for making and dwelling in peace. You 're responsible for your laughter, your tears, your sadness and your Anger. Determine how you use them. No one is in control of them other than you. And your ''Positive mindset'' is the prime factor needed for your success.

 Learn to forgive yourself for whatever thing you *feel* you have done wrong. Take corrections and apply them with *Wisdom.* Do not judge other people's actions, let them be judged by the divine law of justice. And know that ''The key to being happy is knowing you have the power to choose what to accept and what to let go'' -Dodinsky-

  1. I'm particularly struggling with forgiving myself. I can do that for other people, but somehow fail toforgive myself. Thanks for the article, I agree!

    1. Sorry to hear that Diana, Be patient! like i said, 'it's a process and you'll need lot's of patience."

  2. Forgiveness in some circumstances is easier than in some others. I've had to put in great effort to be a peacemaker but sometimes it's just doesn't seem worth it. After this post I'm ready to put in more effort

    1. Well as humans we tend to see it that way. However, it pays to live in peace than live in hatred against another. I'm glad you are. Wish you Luck!

  3. Forgiveness is very difficult but well worth the effort... life is too short to walk around with anger on your heart . Shell

  4. Forgiveness is so important and definitely freeing, but can be so hard to do sometimes. I want to let go and move on, but my ego doesn't.

  5. Forgiveness is so hard at times! But yes I think many times the offender doesn't know they've done wrong, and taking solitude jeeps in forgiving From the heart. Thank you!

  6. Forgiveness can be very difficult at times. Thank you for sharing!
