"Itís better to forgive
To give up the pain
That attacks the brain
And eats up your heart"
You can ask for forgiveness all year round!
Asking for forgiveness:
When we ask for forgiveness, we clean our bodies from sin, but is our heart also cured? And if it was hurt, and hurt badly, by a person close to us, how then can we forgive? How can we forgive and forget?
People who hurt others often and people who are easily hurt generally respond from their subconscious. Thatís where there is a "warehouse" of all the emotions and memories, and thatís the source of the reactions that sometimes burst out uncontrollably and with lots of regrets afterwards. But after the words have come out, the damage has been done and we have to work hard in order to repair it.
How to Forgive?
Forgiveness is an important and possible step and its goal is to relieve the pain or injury. You can forgive and apologize at the same moment and you can also forgive hours, days or years later, or even never.
But itís important to remember that the faster you forgive and forget, the faster you can get on with your life, without causing any mental damage.
Itís not a good idea to keep things bottled up. Ongoing rage robs us of lots of unnecessary energy, itís exhausting and frustrating for us. Forgiveness releases the blockage in the body and opens the door to new possibilities.
Many people arenít capable of giving up their dignity and "humiliating" themselves and asking for forgiveness. They see this as a weakness - as if they have lost something. On the contrary. We pay a heavy price for bottling up pain and anger, for our negative approach to various situations and for thinking that we are by no means sure how to forgive and how to ask for forgiveness.
We are afraid to express forgiveness, at school they donít teach us how to ask for forgiveness, and even if we search for it, we donít always find the right way. Oftentimes we think that forgiving people is a "gift" that we give them, but itís actually a "gift" Ö that we give ourselvesÖ
We can also ask for forgiveness from a person who has died. Itís never too late. We can express it through prayer, meditation and even write a letter and send it to the sea, without an addressÖ
The very action and positive thought of forgiveness can be alleviating and relieving.
But remember, in order to learn how to forgive, we must start by forgiving ourselves. Then it will be easier to forgive others as well.
Donít preoccupy yourself with pain, look to the future and create a more interesting and beautiful life.
We naturally tend to distance ourselves from a person who has hurt us. On the contrary. Help him help you. Give him another chance and thus you will be able to lead "a life thatís healthier, calmer, more tranquil and more beautiful!"
