Why We Must Learn To Forgive

Forgiving is for ourselves.

Why We Must Learn To Forgive

God calls us to forgive others, but why is it so hard sometimes? Why should we forgive them?

If you’re reading this article, then I am assuming you have someone in your life who has done you wrong, and you need to forgive them.

Good news!

Forgiveness isn't for the person who did you wrong, believe it or not, forgiveness is for you!

Holding on to un-forgiveness, and bitterness only damages our soul. It’s like walking day-to-day with a dead weight, and a chain around our feet. Truth is, we’re all humans, we all mess up, we all need forgiveness.

Forgiving doesn't necessarily mean forgetting.

Forgiving just means you lay that dead weight, that bitterness, and that hatred in the hands of God, and you walk away. Forgiving is the beginning of a healing process, the day you start forgiving those who have done you wrong, is the day your life becomes better.

If you walk day-to-day, holding onto that un- forgiveness, it's only hurting you, not the person who did you wrong.

Take it from someone who’s been in that position.

Forgive for yourself, and walk away from the situation. Lay it in Gods hands.

It works, I promise!

A sometimes-overlooked aspect of Independence Day is bonding with family and friends. That is, after all, where my favorite memories were.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.
