The Power Of Forgiveness


“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
Mahatma GandhiHave you ever been wronged by someone? In such a case, our nature is not to forgive. We want to take revenge. We want to get even. That’s why Mahatma Gandhi’s quote above is apt. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. The weak can never forgive. If you want to live above the average, then, forgiveness must be one of your attributes.
One possible reason why it’s hard to forgive is because you can’t forgiveyourself. You might have made mistakes in the past and blame yourself for it. Since you can’t forgive yourself, it’s hard for you to forgive others.
The first step, then, is to forgive yourself. Realize that nobody is perfect. Realize that everyone makes mistakes. Therefore there is no reason not to give yourself a second chance. Only by giving yourself a second chance can you give others a second chance.
You can then learn to forgive others. An important thing to remember is thatforgiveness is a matter ofdecision, notfeeling. You might notfeellike it, but you candecideto forgive. Make the decision and let the burden go.
When you forgive others, guess what? You setyourselffree.Perhaps you think that by not forgiving others you maketheirlives miserable. But the fact is, the one who is most miserable isyou. Why? Because you can’t have peace in your heart. No matter how much you own, you still can’t live with inner peace. You might think you are okay, but that’s probably because you’ve forgotten how true peace is like.
Trust me, the burden you put on yourself is not worth it. Tap into the power of forgiveness. Living a free and peaceful life is way, way better.
