Forgiveness is giving. You are giving love, happiness, freedom, peace, and harmony. You are not only giving it to the other person, you are also giving it to yourself. Forgiveness is not about them; it is about you. It is about your freedom. It is about your peace. It is about your life. It is about your inner harmony. Don’t carry grudges around. It hurts. It is better to forgive. When you forgive people, life will forgive you. As Dr. Joseph Murphy once said, “Forgiveness is giving- giving love, peace, and all the blessings of life to the other- and as you give, you receive.” So if you want people to forgive you, you must first forgive people. You tend to get in life what you put into it. If you want to get love, share your love and forgiveness with other people. The more you do it, the more you get.
