Forgiveness can be a powerful tool for healing emotional wounds. There is the power we give it to restore relationships, reduce stress and anxiety, and promote empathy and compassion. Then there is that energetic power of release that is greater than ‘self,’ which makes it healing: mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Holding onto anger, resentment, and bitterness can be an incredibly stressful task and can contribute to a build-up of anxiety, other negative emotions and health issues.
Forgiveness is one of the most powerful emotional gifts we give ourselves. When we do, it can restore trust and rebuild relationships that have been damaged.
When we harness the power to forgive someone, we actively release the negative emotions that we have been holding onto. The process isn't always easy—-though the work is rewarding.
Forgiving someone forces us out of our comfort zone and we are able to see things from a wider and clearer perspective and with greater understanding, which can help us to be compassionate.
Pushing through the resolution of forgiveness can help us to move forward in living our lives with gratitude, peace, mental stability and happiness..
