Forgiveness


Emotional suffering for a prolonged time is never necessary. Healing is always in reach. Emotional wounds must first be opened by confronting the truth, then healed with forgiveness. We must forgive those we feel have wronged us, not because they deserve to be forgiven, but because we love ourselves so much that it is not worth continuing paying emotionally for the injustice. Forgiveness is the only pathway to emotional healing. And when you forgive, you relinquish playing the role of the judge, as well as the role of playing the victim.

You know you have forgiven someone when you see or think about them and no longer have an emotional reaction. When you touch something that used to be an emotional wound and it no longer hurts, then you know that you have truly forgiven.
