Forgive, even though the person doesn't deserve it.
Life is painful. Oh, I know that when we think back on our life, the good times quickly come to mind. The good times are a wonderful treat, but they don't test you, or help you grow. Pain causes growth. The heavy weight that causes the muscle to retreat, or break down under the pressure, causes those muscles to get stronger. That's just the way it is. Our bodies have an amazing way of healing itself, but sometimes we need to take action to heal emotional hurts.
Forgiveness is a gift that you can give, even if the other person doesn't take it, acknowledge the wrong, or return the favor.
It's a gift you can give to someone that never asked for it, or never deserved it - because this gift you give away, can end up healing you. Keep in mind, this can be with just you. Sometimes the people we need to forgive can't, or shouldn't be contacted. What I am discussing here is just within yourself.
** Only for the Brave -
You may want to take out a piece of paper and write down those you need to forgive. Let go of the weight and the emotional chains that unforgiveness brings, then rip up and throw away the paper. It can be life changing, but maybe you aren't ready for that yet.
People aren't perfect, especially the ones closest to us. Our family, friends, spouse, significant others will hurt us. We can't change others, but we can learn new actions (and reactions) for ourselves. Forgiveness is tough to give. Revenge feels 'right,' but it only extends the hurt. Forgiveness feels 'crazy' to us, but it can disengage you from the hurt. Forgiveness is freedom. Living free of unforgiveness, bitterness and anger is its own gift. Just try to forgive, often.
