Research shows people who are more forgiving tend to be more satisfied with their lives and to have less depression, anxiety, stress, anger and hostility. People who hang on to grudges are more likely to experience severe depression and physical ailments.
Forgiveness does not mean you become best friends with the person who wronged you. Forgiveness is not saying what happened was OK. Forgiveness is not saying you accept the person who wronged you.
Forgiveness does not mean you forget what happened, you just don't dwell on it.
Forgiveness is choosing to accept what happened rather than what could or should have happened.
Forgiveness isn’t easy and it can take time. Feel all the feelings you need to, but know the sooner you let it go the better. It’s only hurting you, not them. Don't allow your mind and your body to go through another day feeling vengeful and angry.
Step into your present, don’t anchor in the past.
Let that s**t go.
