Is there someone in your life who has wronged you and you just can’t let it go? Is it weighing you down?
If you can relate, believe me, you are not alone!!! Resentment is such a common culprit for many of my clients – stirring up negative feelings and emotions, such as anger, as we re-live and dwell on past injuries.
When we carry around this baggage, it drains us of our energy and attention and ability to form those deeply loving bonds we crave.
Do you want to know the solution?
It may not be what you want to hear, but I guarantee it will help you feel more peaceful and whole.
Here it is…forgiveness…that’s the answer. Learning how to forgive is not only good for other people; it’s good for your soul too. When you forgive, you allow yourself the opportunity to cultivate compassion, which enables you to transform your toxic thoughts into a state of love. By being more compassionate toward others, you will feel lighter, happier, and more full of life.
Forgiveness isn’t about letting the other person off the hook; it’s not saying that whatever they did to you is okay. It’s about detaching emotionally from what happened.
When someone wrongs you, it creates resentment and anger inside. And when you’re unable to learn how to forgive, it has a tremendous effect on your health.
