Forgiveness is something you owe yourself.
It’s an act of kindness towards your well-being more than a courtesy to others. Because of course, others will be relieved by the fact you are forgiving them, they will be happy and feel like they can continue with their lives with one less burden.
But you. You will be so much lighter if you make of forgiving a consistent practice. You will be freed of damaging thoughts, anxiety, bad feelings, toxic memories that drain your energy. Even when it’s seem that it’s not a big deal, that you barely think about the whole fact, not forgiving is a black hole that sucks you in. It’s unrelenting. It’s negative.
Give yourself the space to achieve what matters. Genuinely forgive, and move on.
