It Takes Character To Be Forgiving

James Allen said, “If men only understood that their hatred and resentment slays their peace and sweet contentment, hurts themselves, helps not another, does not cheer one lonely brother, they would seek the better doing of good deeds which leaves no ruing.”

It takes character to let go of resentment. Resentment does not hurt the other person. Resentment hurts you. It destroys your happiness. It hurts you. It takes your happiness away. But you can get yourself back.

Let resentment go. Don’t let resentment control you. You are better than resentment. You are better than hate. You are a child of Love. God loves you. No matter what you are going though in your life, do not complain. God is not a complainer. All you need to do is to focus on your life. Make peace with yourself. Because if you can’t make peace with yourself, you can’t make peace with others. And to make peace with yourself, with your soul, you must be in control of your life. Dale Carnegie said, “Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain- and most fools do. But it takes character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.” It takes character to be forgiving. What about you?

What Worries You, Masters You

John Locke said, “What worries you, masters you.” Worrying is not the way to go in our lives. We worry too much. We worry about things that will never happen to us. If you have something going on in your life, worrying about it won’t help you. It will hurt you. It is okay to think about your problems, but not worrying yourself about it. If you want to solve a problem, don’t worry about it, think about it.

Life is full of stress. But you must do everything within your power to manage it. Focus on what will make you happy. If you like to practice meditation, do more of it. If you like to read to calm yourself, do more of it. Just do what makes you happy. Do what makes you relax yourself, your soul. Because you are not here to worry, but to live your life. How you manage your life will make all the difference. Are you going to stop worrying yourself?

“What worries you, masters you.”-
