Forgiveness isn’t approving what happened. It’s choosing to rise above it, Robin Sharma.
Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies, Nelson Mandela.
Forgive your partner, especially when s/he is sincerely sorry, willing to change her/himself, and fix the problem.
We all have flaws, imperfections, and weaknesses. We all make mistakes and screw up at one time or another. We hurt each other (“So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her,” John 8:7). Thus, we need to forgive with compassion and generosity, move on, and be happy.
Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too, Will Smith.
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you, Louis B. Smedes.
Forgiveness is also the best gift you can ever give to yourself. You should always forgive or, at least, forget; even when pain and suffering come into our lives, when you have been mocked, offended, ridiculed, betrayed, or abused. This is the only way, because all revenge, retribution, and violence give rise to further revenge, hatred, and violence.
Forgiveness brings inner peace, happiness, and healing even though the scars and wounds of our emotional experiences can linger in our hearts for the rest of our lives!
Let these experiences and negative emotions go; it is the right time to let bitterness, hatred, and anger go because holding on is just a useless struggle and misery. It is hurting you! It is killing you! LET THEM GO!
