The Importance of Forgiveness

“Forgiveness is one of the most important first steps to ending conflicts in our families, our communities, and between nations. Learning to let things go and forgive isn’t always easy. But, when we truly forgive, it helps foster better health, better relationships, a deeper sense of purpose and self worth, and a feeling of connection to others”

(Alan, R., n.d.).

 

Forgiveness is one of the most important things to learn in life. It can be hard to start and even more difficult to master. But once you do, you’ll have healthier and happier relationships with others and with yourself. Learning to let go will set you free from all that anger and hurt you hold on to. Thus, remember that forgiveness is not about others; it’s about yourself.

Amanda Horne wrote a great article on this topic. She covers many aspects of it, from forgiving your colleagues at work to real examples of how people achieved forgiveness.
