Monday, November 11th, 2019. New York City – Some people forgive. Some people do not forgive. Forgive but do not forget? What are the benefits of forgiving?
According to Psychology Today, “Forgiveness is the release of resentment; it replaces the negative feelings often harbored toward offenders with neutral feelings, or in some cases, positive feelings. Forgiveness doesn’t automatically mean a reconciliation. We don’t have to return to the same relationship or accept the same harmful behaviors from someone who has hurt us.
The act of forgiveness is first and foremost for ourselves. It lets us move on from the past instead of leading bitterness and anger to perturb our emotional well-being. Research bears out these benefits: Forgiveness has been shown to elevate mood, enhance optimism, and guard against anger, stress, anxiety, and depression.
Self-forgiveness is often the first step toward a more loving and positive relationship with yourself, and therefore with others.”

“I have learned, that the person I have to ask for forgiveness from the most is: myself. You must love yourself. You have to forgive yourself, everyday, whenever you remember a shortcoming, a flaw, you have to tell yourself “That’s just fine”. You have to forgive yourself so much, until you don’t even see those things anymore. Because that’s what love is like.”―C. JoyBell C.
