|Forgiveness helps us more than the other person.|
I know what I'm talking about because I used to live in hurt and pain, but I was only messing myself up and I was not growing. So believe me when I say, you are not hurting the other person when you're all mad, angry, and twisted up, because of what they said or did or didn't say or do. You are only hurting yourself and your family, because you are not full. And they see it, you're not fooling them. They know you're bitter and jacked-up about that thing. Our families deserve more that that. We deserve more than that.
Release it and know that you don't have to be around the person or people who did you dirty. All you have to do is let go of those negative feelings. True forgiveness looks like this: when you think about that person or those people who did you wrong, you will still be ok. And if you're around him, her, or them, there will no more hatred, no more hurt, and no more pain. You win. You will have a peaceful countenance (expression) and a calm spirit (true self). You will not suffer any emotional chaos anymore. You will be free of them and you will be free from that thing that previously tore you to shreds. Yes, you will be free at last.
