A wise man named Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies." I really love this quote for many reasons, the main one being that it expresses the power of forgiveness. It is one of the most powerful things someone can do and yet not many people can actually do it. This quote was beautifully said because it is true that no one in the world is perfect, and we all do make mistakes. Nobody says you have to be with the person who wronged you, or hurt you, ever again, but forgiving is part of the process of letting go.
To forgive someone for all that they've done is something that takes the strength of your entire being.
Forgiveness comes from within the heart and that is something Jesus Christ taught me.
My religion of Catholicism showed me forgiveness and I know that no matter what it is the golden thing to do. I've held a strong faith in Jesus Christ since I was a little girl and Christ helped me to see that forgiveness is an important thing in life to do. There are many reasons why we should forgive those who have drove hatred and madness towards us. When we forgive those who have hurt us, it enables us to be stronger individuals and to let go of horrible vibes. Walking around with hate towards another human being for the rest of your life really isn't healthy and will always be dragging you down. Is it really going to be making you feel better? No, I didn't think so.
We must forgive everyone because everyone deserves forgiveness. It doesn't mean that you will be with that person ever again but it means that you can stop walking around with hate in your heart. I've forgiven many people throughout my life who have done me wrong, but I'll never forget what they actually did to me. I truly do believe that everyone deserves someone else to forgive their wrong doings.
There was someone who was very close to me who hurt me in more ways than anyone else has ever hurt me. Even though this person did all that they did, I was able to pray to God and truly be able to forgive that person. I pray to God that this person gets the help that they truly need, and that they finally realize what they did to me was wrong. I didn't want to walk around with any more hate, therefore I forgave this person and hope this person receives the help that they need and that God comes into their life eventually.
"To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness." - Robert Muller
