During the times I harbored unforgiveness in my heart, I went through days of being angry, pissed, unhappy at everyone, and everything.

I mean, who would want to relate with someone like me? No one!

I started losing friends, people kept their distance. I had to think about myself then I knew that living that way would not help me. I finally let go and forgave those that offended me just because I wanted to be happy.
Guess what- I had my relief!

What is unforgiveness?

I have come to realize that unforgiveness is a cage that prevents one from moving forward. It makes one a bitter person and bitter people don’t move forward. The best a bitter person can do is to make others bitter.

I know it sounds almost impossible and feels very hard to forgive someone who hurt you, but you have to try for your own sake.
Forgiveness could be hard, but it could also be the best choice to make! Well, not because you don’t have the right to be angry but because you can’t keep hurting yourself. YOU HAVE TO MOVE ON!

Think about it this way – unforgiveness is like having intentions to drive forward with the gear on reverse mode; of course, you would keep going backward.

Choose forgiveness

I know it’s hard sometimes it could be really hard to let go, but if you don’t do it, you’d definitely have a sad life – I’m talking from experience.

Unforgiveness leads to living a life of anger, hatred, and bitterness. You get nothing in life than more and more of these negative qualities.

Living this kind of life never helps, never makes one move forward.
Another major thing is It even creates a wider bridge between you and God!
Pause and take a moment to reflect on it.

Why should I choose forgiveness?

It is a choice to make in order to release yourself from a lifetime burden and one that would help to rise above the past hurt. It’s not because the person you are forgiving deserves it but because you deserve to be happy.

Let’s be frank, unforgiveness will not change what has happened. Why hold on to it?
Even God forgives us; who are we not to forgive?

The ability to let go and forgive is a reflection of your understanding of love.
Choose forgiveness and make the best of your life’s journey, keeping in mind that people will mess up sometimes but that doesn’t mean that you should wallow in such mess.

Furthermore, forgiveness doesn’t make you weak, it sets you free. It keeps your heart healthy and releases you from the bondage of worries.

Forgive, it sets you free.
