People pretend they are perfect until they disappoint us. Boo-hoo. Deal with it through letting go.

Holding a grudge takes a lot of space in your mind, an area that you could fill with what matters to you.
Free your headspace. Forgive and grow as a person. If you can’t forgive others, how are you going to forgive yourself?

Forgiveness is always trendy. Wear it like a scarf. Just be careful it doesn’t choke you.

Mentor Coach, Why YOU Must Learn to Forgive

You have not lived until you have learned to forgive someone who has hurt you.

Forgiveness is a transformative process that is not always easy to do.

It is impossible to escape the inevitable act of having to forgive someone at some point. When someone betrays us, and we tend to interpret forgiveness as a betrayal of ourselves.

What’s the cost to your long-term happiness by holding a grudge?

The cost of not moving forward to live your life on your terms? To live OUT your calling? While it might seem like holding the grudge is your sweet revenge, it’s terrible for your mental health. 

When you fail to forgive, you waste so much energy reliving the awful experience. The memory of the incident persists like a lousy fart on a crowded dance floor.

When YOU forgive, you stop the preoccupation with the hurtful incident.

You move forward and mature as a balance, self-determined person.

Some people have difficulty forgiving and stay angry for years.

The secret is to confront the feelings that prevent you from forgiveness.

On the flip side, do you forgive too much? Are you in an abusive relationship whereby you keep forgiving your perpetrator?

Don’t get into the habit of forgiving your abusers if they are unwilling to change for the better. You must learn from your experiences and move on!

Pseudo forgiveness.

Fake forgiveness. On the surface, it seems like you have forgiven, but deep down inside, you keep on suffering. You can say I forgive you most poetically without even meaning it. It is easy to write a poem. Try to live the poem.

Some people have this annoying habit of always asking for forgiveness. They’re the ones who apologize for insignificant, everyday things. 

Oh, sorry for being so tired. Sorry for not saving you that extra piece of cake. If you’re this person, you need to work on your self-confidence level. Without it, it will be hard to progress in life.

You are being incapable of accepting forgiveness. It is a similar process as being incapable of forgiving. If this is you, you can feel guilty and depressed for months, or even years. Depression and guilt are going to stand on your way of personal growth.

Do you need to forgive someone for something? If so, how do you plan to make it happen?
