The Power of Forgiveness

"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Have you ever been wronged by someone? Our nature is such that, when it happens, we never forgive the person. We want to even them out. That's the reason why Gandhi's quote is appropriate. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. If you wanna live above the average then you must learn to Forgive.
The main reason why most of you can't forgive is because you can't forgive yourself. You might have made mistakes in the past and blame yourself for it. And when you can't Forgive yourself, it is difficult to Forgive others. So, first Forgive yourself.
Nobody is perfect. Every human makes a mistake. The difference comes when you rectify it or not. Therefore, there is no reason not to give yourself a second chance. Only by giving yourself a second chance can you give others a second chance. You will then learn to forgive others.
Forgiveness is a matter of decision and not a feeling. You might not feel like Forgiving a person but you can decide to Forgive. Make the Decision. Let go of it and let God handle it. 'Let Go & let God.'
You may think that by not forgiving them you are making their life miserable. But what about yours? It is more or lesser the same. Because there's no Peace. Peace comes from Forgiveness. No matter how much you own, inner peace can't be achieved. Do you feel like there's no problem? Have you forgotten what true peace is like?
Forgiveness is the key to peace, health and happiness.
If we can find Forgiveness in our hearts for those who have caused us hurt and injury, we will rise to a higher level of self-esteem.
Make a list of all the people who you haven't forgiven, for its time for you to live a peaceful life!
