Peace of Wisdom

By Andy Andrews

Psychologists define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or anger toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness? 

You might think that forgiving someone who isn’t deserving of that forgiveness is ridiculous. But have you considered that it may be the most healing thing you could do…for yourself?

Holding onto anger and resentment is like drinking poison….and expecting the other person to die.  That’s why it is a good thing that someone doesn’t have to deserve your forgiveness for you to forgive them.  In fact, it’s not even totally necessary that they know.  Turns out, your forgiveness heals you…more than anyone else

Today’s Peace of Wisdom can be found in the divine tonic of letting go, forgiving those who deserve it, and those who don’t.
