The Power to Forgive
Novelist and Motivational Blogger Suzie Carr shares a hurtful moment she experienced. Then, she talks about how she turned this hurt around so she could get back to living a life free of bitterness and full of love.
When we forgive someone, we free ourselves. The weight of the world magically falls off our shoulders. It’s so challenging to do though, isn’t it?
To forgive someone is hard. It takes an enormous amount of strength to let that hurt just roll off the shoulders and observe it with a neutral eye. Many might argue on the other side that to hold onto that hurt would take even more strength over time.
When we learn to let go, we are capable of bringing so much joy into our lives and the lives of those we love.
Essentially, we forgive to free ourselves.
Forgiving someone for their horrible actions doesn’t mean we are accepting them as okay. Absolutely not! They hurt us. In no universe is this acceptable. We are not justifying the wrong they’ve caused. That being said, we can forgive people without condoning the act.
The important and empowering takeaway is that forgiveness is our choice.
