It takes a lot to forgive someone when you feel you’ve been wronged, sometimes it feels like you’d rather do anything than achieve that level of letting go. There are so many arguments against forgiving. I could list them here. Sometimes, we don’t even remember the traumas that occurred when we were young.
Our emotions get stuck in our bodies. When we hold on to various angers, hurts, traumas, for whatever reason, they become a part of our physical self. Choosing to forgive allows them to begin to heal.
It’s not always easy to forgive. We get so stuck with concepts and ideas of how things should be. We feel like we are right to have our feelings and whatever happened back then is totally unforgiveable.
If you are having trouble try spending some time with the issue that’s so hard to let go of. Imagine that whatever happened to you, happened for some higher reason, even if you don’t understand that reason. Go to that place inside of yourself that knows who you are today is stronger, smarter, or better because of that event.
