forgiveness

I felt a need to post a few words on forgiveness. Sometimes it is hard to forgive. Sometimes it is hard when you don't receive forgiveness. Remember, we are only responsible for ourselves. Reach down and find you, and then be you.

"Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life." Joan Lunden, in Healthy Living Magazine

"Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were." Cherie Carter-Scott, "If Love Is a Game, These Are the Rules"

"Forgiveness does not always lead to a healed relationship. Some people are not capable of love, and it might be wise to let them go along with your anger. Wish them well, and let them go their way." Real Live Preacher, RealLivePreacher.com Weblog, July 7, 2003
