“Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”
When we hang on to resentments, the only thing we are doing is to poison ourselves. The best way to liberate yourself is through forgiveness.
Most of the times the other part doesn’t even have the conscious of our emotional grudge, and even if they do they might not have the ability to make amends because the problem was caused by a behavior or a habit that has its origins in a pattern. When you get this kind of clarity you have the opportunity to break that pattern, but you need to do the work.
We need a lot of awareness to perceive our own patterns and be able to control them, how can we expect that from a person that lives in unawareness? The best approach is to acknowledge that that person is where they are on their path and not take things personally. When we do that, not only we release the energetic attachment to that person but we also liberate ourselves to move on.
Be selfish, forgive them for your own peace of mind. Print this sheet right now and write your Forgiveness Letter.
