It's not easy to forgive someone after they've hurt you in many ways.
Whenever the memory of those things they did to betray you crosses your mind, you feel very angry.
It may be your ex or the person you are currently dating or married to.
They may have betrayed your trust or spoken ill about you to other people, and you keep pondering whether you should forgive them.
It's easy to say you'll forgive someone without doing it because you feel that forgiving the person means you've overlooked their offense.
However, many of us don't know that when you forgive someone, you are doing good to yourself and not the person you forgive.
Forgiveness is like medicine that liberates your heart from bitterness, anger, hate, and revenge, which makes you live a healthy life.
You will be mentally healthy and able to sleep well at night.
Forgiving your ex and your partner means you are spiritually and emotionally mature.
You will feel empowered to pursue your goals in life without being distracted by those negative feelings like hatred or bitterness.
When you forgive your ex, it's good for your current relationship because you won't have a general resentment against the gender that hurt you.
You are doing your body and soul a great benefit by forgiving people. When you always remember this, you will be able to forgive easily.
Don't seek revenge because taking revenge is like trying to pick up a hot coal with your hands just to throw it at someone who offended you.
It will hurt you first before the person you are trying to burn.
Forgiveness allows you to move forward in your endeavors.
Holding a grudge against someone is like carrying a bag of bricks and trying to swim with it.
Please do yourself a favor by letting it go so that you can move forward.
