To forgive, Alexander Pope, once said, is Divine. This is no small truth. To forgive is a gift and blessing – not just to the person you’re forgiving, but to yourself. Forgiveness is a powerful way to accelerate your spiritual growth because it liberates you, the forgiver, from the intense negativity of holding onto a grudge.
Whether your angry, hurt or just confused by someone else’s actions (or in-actions) holding onto those negative emotions only harms you. We found this video incredibly inspiring and hope you do too. Check it out and let us know what you think. And for those of you who’ve had a powerful experience with forgiveness – as the giver or receiver – we’d love to hear your story!
