Forgiveness: the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven
- pardon, mercy, pity, etc.
"Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you."
God forgives us, so why shouldn't we forgive others.
We've all been in situations where we had to forgive someone. Rather it is a broken relationship, a parent missing in action, or a fake best friend.
Extending forgiveness to those that hurt you is an awesome trait. No need to hold on to pain or bitterness. When you don't allow forgiveness it gives the enemy room to have more control of your emotions, and this could be detrimental to your spirit and mental state. Never allow anyone to have that much power to steal our joy and control your emotions.
Will this matter a year from now?
Was it your fault?
We can't change the way people treat us; we can only change how we react. I encourage you to love and forgive others, and you will benefit from it.
Let it go, and live your life.
