What is Forgiveness?

According to International Forgiveness Institute, “When you forgive someone who has deeply hurt you, you let go of resentment and the urge to seek revenge, no matter how deserving of these things the wrongdoer may be. You give the great gifts of acceptance, generosity and love. Though the wrongdoer does not deserve these gifts, you don’t let that stand in your way. You give, not out of pity, not out of grim obligation. Rather, you give because you have chosen to have a merciful heart. A heart with the power to free yourself so you can live a better life.”

Here are 6 motivational quotes on the power of forgiveness:

Lawana Blackwell, author, said, “Forgiveness is almost a selfish act because of its immense benefits to the one who forgives.”

Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it forgoes revenge, and dare forgive an injury.”- Edwin Hubbell Chapin, theologian

“Forgiveness is the final form of love.”- Reinhold Niebuhr, theologian

“It takes one person to forgive, it takes two people to be reunited.”- Lewis B. Smedes, author

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.”- Lewis B. Smedes

“You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well.”- Lewis B. Smedes

“Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it forgoes revenge, and dare forgive an injury.”- Edwin Hubbell Chapin, preacher

Forgiveness is freedom. When you forgive who hurt you, you are free. The other person is free, too.

Forgiveness is healing. When you forgive who hurt you, you are healing from the pain. You are healing from the past. You are healing into the present.

But one thing is clear: forgiveness is a hard thing to do, but if you can do it, you will be free forever. If you find yourself struggling to forgive someone, you are not alone. We are all in it together.

People find it difficult to forgive because they can’t let go of the feeling of resentment. They can’t forget the past. They think they are letting the person go unpunished.

Forgiveness does not mean that you are letting the person who hurt you go unpunished. It means you are letting yourself off the pain of the past. It means you are freeing yourself from bondage. It means you are now a mature person, meaning you are bigger than the person who hurt you.

Forgiveness is your choice. It is a choice between staying in the past or moving forward. It is a choice between letting go or continue to live in pain. It is a choice between being a victim or a victor. Forgiveness takes time. It is a process. Don’t rush into it. Take your time to forgive and forget.

Forgiveness is letting go of the past. If you let go of the past, if you forget the past, then you can focus on the moment. But if you keep living in the past, if you keep dwelling on what happened yesterday, you will miss what is happening right now. Don’t let resentment steal your happiness away from you. Don’t let resentment steal your destiny away from you. Resentment is toxic. It is worse than cancer. Resentment allows us to continually live in pain. Resentment is dangerous to your health and well-being, so get rid of it.

Reinhold Niebuhr, theologian, said, “Forgiveness is the final form of love.” You cannot love someone unless you have forgiven him or her. Forgiveness is hard, but if you can do it, you are free forever. Enjoy your freedom!

According to James Allen, “A sour face does not come by chance; it is made by sour thoughts.”

“What a man thinks, he becomes.”- Henry Thomas Hamblin

You can create your own peace of mind if you allow positive things into your mind. If you allow positive things into your mind, your mind will be dominated with positive things. As a result, you will have your own peace of mind.

James Allen Said, “Thoughts of doubt and fear never accomplish anything, and never can.” If you want to create your own peace of mind, don’t doubt yourself, be brave, be happy, focus on positive things, take your mind off negative things.

Here are additional ways you can create your peace of mind:

Be happy.

“The art of being happy lies in power of extracting happiness from common things.”- Henry Ward Beecher, minister

Be grateful.

“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.”- Henry Ward Beecher, minister

Practice the art of forgiveness.

“Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of the past, and is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions.”- Gerald G. Jampolsky, author

Be yourself.

To have your own peace of mind, you must believe in yourself. You must love yourself. Be happy. William Arthur Ward, writer, Said, “Happiness is an inside job.” Be a positive person, don’t judge anyone, and live a balanced life.

One of the reasons you are here on earth is to live a life of purpose, to be happy, to have abundance in your life. You are here for reasons that are bigger than yourself. You are here to make the world a better place, to help yourself and others succeed in life.

You cannot succeed alone. You need people to help you get what you want, and in the process, you are getting what you want.

Here are six simple ways to have abundance in your life:

Do what you love. This is one of the reasons you are here on earth. Doing what you love is the first step to having abundance in your life. If you love what you do, no matter how difficult, you will succeed. So, find what you love and do it very well.

Be grateful. Be grateful for what you have. The more you appreciate what you have, the more you will continue to have abundance in your life. Anthony Robin said, “When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.” Appreciate what you have, and more will come to you.

Embrace obstacles. Problems are part of our lives. We cannot live a fulfilled life without problems. You get what you want by solving problems. You become a better person by embracing obstacles, by seeing obstacles as opportunities. Whenever you run into trouble, take a deep breath, and find out what to do next. Don’t quit.

Stop blaming people for your mess. When you blame people for your problems, you are giving your power away. Instead of blaming people, blame yourself, take responsibility for your actions, learn from it, and move on.

Embrace change. Change is the only way to a fulfilled life. If you want to have abundance in your life, you must love change. It is scary, but it is the only way out. There is no change without moving forward. There is no moving forward without change. If you want to grow, you must change.

Practice the art of forgiveness. When you forgive people who have done something bad to you, it shows that you love yourself. You want to be free to enjoy your life. Remember, when you forgive people, you are forgiving yourself.

Finally, to have abundance in your life, you must live your life in ways that will allow abundance to flow into your life.
