The act of forgiveness is the act of returning to present time. And that’s why when one has become a forgiving person, and has managed to let go of the past, what they’ve really done is they’ve shifted their relationship with time. ~ Caroline Myss ~
We only have the present, and to live in the present, we must forgive past hurts. If you are harboring resentment towards another human being because of past hurts, choose to forgive and move on.
We may not want to forget, or can’t forget, another person’s bad behaviors, but virtually everybody deserves our forgiveness. Sometimes we get stuck in our pain and our stubbornness, we can’t even imagine forgiveness. But forgiveness isn’t saying, “I agree with what you did.” Instead, it’s saying, “I don’t agree with what you did, but I forgive you anyway.”
When you forgive another, it does not mean you wish to continue your relationship with them. This is a separate decision. You can forgive a person and live your life apart from them. We need to learn to let go. We need to be able to forgive, so we can move on and be happy.
Appreciate the present and remember to smell the roses along the journey.
