Frogive


Forgiveness is freeing up and putting to better use the energy once consumed by holding grudges, harboring resentments, and nursing unhealed wounds. It is rediscovering the strengths we always had and relocating our limitless capacity to understand and accept other people and ourselves.

This is an amazing quote. Especially when it comes to resentment - such a negative emotion that achieves nothing. That's one thing I am trying to constantly work on - letting go of all resentment, old and new. Thanks so much for sharing.

yes..it is very important to acknowledge how hard it is to forgive...but go ahead and try to do it anyway. There is a fine line between forgiving and forgetting. They don't mean the same thing.
