Forgiveness…. Why?

Many of you couldn’t imagine forgiving an attacker. This takes time to do. You must first make peace with yourself; and come to terms with what has happened. Imagine yourself at a crossroad: In one direction is peace and happiness; the other is pain and hate. You cannot go both ways; so you must choose a path. To continue to hold on to pain and hate will; eventually; destroy you. It is like poison… the longer you harbor it; the more damage it creates in your personal life and your spiritual life; as well as being physically damaging to your body. Do not let the attacker win! Hanging on to the hate will control you. Your attacker could be a million miles away; and still be in control of you; should you choose the path of hatred. You do not have to forget! (that will never happen) ~but if you CAN forgive. If you choose the path of forgiveness; you WILL be much; much happier. Again: This takes time !! So don’t be disappointed if you cannot do this right away. Be patient with yourSELF! And remember, no one can force you to forgive, that’s just for you!!!

My personal path to forgiveness was long and day I thought I had forgiven and the next I was at square one. I even felt disappointed because I could not forgive. because I knew If I could forgive this would tell me I was very close to completing my healing. but I had to give it time. most importantly, I needed the time to have my anger.

  1. Right here is the right webpage for anyone who hopes to understand this topic.

    You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would
    want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic
    that’s been written about for ages. Great stuff, just wonderful!

  2. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    Nevertheless imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could definitely
    be one of the very best in its niche. Terrific blog!

  3. Admiring the time and energy you put into your blog and in depth information you
    provide. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed
    material. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.

  4. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI,
    just 3G .. Anyhow, wonderful blog!

  5. certainly like your web site but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to inform the
    truth on the other hand I’ll certainly come again again.
