Is it true, that choosing not to forgive, gives those individuals power over you ?
As Gandhi puts it, “Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong”. By choosing not to forgive, we allow ourselves to become prisoners of anger. We then, place ourselves in an isolated cage. Within this cage, we allow the replay of emotions and events to consume us. We become mentally weakened by those actions.
What happens if we simply chose to forgive? What happens if we give ourselves permission to let go of the anger? We can then exhale and release ourselves from mental bondage. We can then unlock the cage of dark emotions and step away from the self imposed traps. We can move into a place of serenity and wonder.
Choosing to forgive, does not take away the wrong doing. Choosing to forgives simply says, I refuse to become prisoner to these circumstances.
