I know that sometimes forgiving is hard to do. But my parents have always taught me that forgiving someone and saying sorry are two fundamentals in surviving relationships, whether they be friends, family or others. And I’ve learned this golden rule.
I have found out that holding on to grudges can be detrimental, both mentally and physically. It can just wipe a person out. I think that keeping anger inside also wreaks havoc on a person’s personality.
One of my good friends is going through some major drama in his life. He asked me what he should do. I told him that one thing he needs to do is to let go of the anger. And then I told him to forgive her.
A few weeks ago he told me that he said to himself, I forgive her. He then sent her a message saying all was forgiven and that he wished her nothing but the best. He told me that all at once the burden was lifted and that he suddenly felt better. I’m so glad that I gave him that advice, cause now he can begin to heal.
