Today’s Question: Do you have any advice on how to forgive people who hurt us and truly move on, I feel like my anger consumes me sometimes… The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong! I think one of the hardest parts of forgiving people who have hurt us is the fact we think it’s somehow excusing what they’ve done (but that isn’t true).
When somebody wrongs you—either by accident or on purpose—it can be hard to get over it. You may never be able to reconcile with the wrongdoer, but forgiveness is divine and it gives you a chance to be a better person. Here are some ways you can work toward forgiving.
Forgiveness may be the last thing on your mind when someone does something truly awful to you, but it’s not just for them—it’s essential for your own well being. Initially you’ll be hit with a lot of emotion, and that’s okay. You don’t need to do anything right then and there, but holding on to that emotion for too long becomes a heavy burden to carry through your life. In essence: you forgive for yourself, not just for them.
It’s not about letting them off easy, either. Forgiving doesn’t mean that you’re excusing what they did, that there isn’t still something to work out, and it especially does not mean that you can’t still have feelings about what happened.
