“Forgiving others is an act of compassion. We know this. Nonetheless, often times we don’t do it. We want those who hurt us to suffer for what they did. By withholding forgiveness we think we are punishing them. We think we are keeping them stuck in a prison of guilt and shame. But the fact is we’re just punishing ourselves.
We’re prolonging our own suffering. We’re withholding from ourselves our own piece of mind. We’re essentially keeping ourselves locked in an emotional prison cell that is of our own making. We victimize ourselves long after having been victimized by our offenders.”
Isn’t that powerful?
Is there someone in your life you have not yet forgiven?
Do it. Forgive them. Free yourself from the burden of un-forgiveness.
