As young children, we form our beliefs and behaviors, based our interactions with others. We are not born with these beliefs, they are learned from family, friends, and even strangers who we interact with in life.
- How to behave
- Good manners
- How to get along with others
- What is right and wrong
- What is legal and illegal
During this period, we also learn from:
- Hurtful things said or done
- Painful experiences
- Abusive situations
- Failed relationships
And while we never really forget, the hurtful things people did to us, we can learn to forgive.
Forgiveness changes our life to be more positive, compassionate and free from negative feelings such as hate, anger, resentment, sadness and animosity.
Never underestimate the power of forgiveness, It will change your life.
Continuing to harbor negative feelings, is hurting only yourself!
It is quite likely, the other person is not aware of how this hurt you, and have forgotten the incident entirely.
You may, if fact, be carrying around all these negative feelings, only hurting yourself further!
Forgiveness is the key to your happiness – let those thoughts go!
You may also have done, said or experienced things, in the past, which haunt you, drag you down and reduce your self-esteem.
Look inside and:
- Accept that these events occured
- Accept the reasons why they occurred
- And forgive yourself
These events happened in the past, allow them to fade away, as they are no longer relevant and do not define who you are now!
