What is Forgiveness?
Forgiveness is letting go of the past.
When we forgive, we free ourselves to live now rather than live in the past. We can move on without anger, hatred, or revenge. If we decide not to forgive, we block our spiritual growth. When we harbor pain, resentment, bitterness, and anger within us, we hurt our body and mind. Releasing resentment allows us to feel and think more positively and improves our health. It can be challenging to let go of the hurt, but forgiving or being forgiven creates opportunities for peace.
