Forgiveness is a funny thing.
Early on, not forgiving kept me from experiencing fulfillment.
Many people live with overwhelming bitterness. Every action tainted by proving a point. To make the other person eat their words.
Here’s the truth: Anytime you are proving a point you hinder your healing.
On September 2015, my wife let me know we would be getting divorced. It marked the beginning of the hardest two years of my life. It’s not something I expected or wanted. I loved my family. I loved marriage!
I never knew my marriage was hanging by a thread.
And, I knew, I must forgive myself first or I’ll never truly forgive others. Forgiving others kills resentment in my life and lets me live a no regrets life. I have heard all my life having resentment towards other people imprisons you, and it is true.
Learning to forgive is a life-long process. It’s worth it.
As you live in total forgiveness with those who have done you wrong a funny thing happens. You attract the right people.
I’ve learned through the process of learning to forgive, relationships grow stronger and mend even with the people you’re forgiving.
My relationships are stronger, deeper and more meaningful now.
Holding resentment was keeping me from experiencing significant relationships that I desperately needed in my life. Unforgiveness is the poison that prevents you from the pursuit of an impeccable existence in this thing we call life.
If you want to fulfill your purpose in life, you have to stop harboring unforgiveness.
This Holiday season, extend forgiveness to the people you need to forgive. And, see how it sets you free from anxiety, fear, and doubts.
