Forgiveness Shows That You Are Too Strong to Be Invaded
Value the Cost of Anger
People get angry because they feel invaded, deprived, ill-treated, misjudged, being humiliated or being bullied. We definitely have the rights to get angry. But we have to value the cost of anger. Being angry, it consumes our energy, attention, time, health and productivity. Be practical about anger and be aware of the cost of holding on to anger.
Unforgiveness disempowers our energies and it can potentially trigger negative emotions ranged from resentment, anger, anxiety, sorrow, regrets, helplessness, hatred and even the idea of revenge.
Master Your Emotion and Master Your Life
Usually, the greatest enemy in our life is ourselves. Master your emotion and mater your life. If you keep letting yourself affected by others’ words, you become their slaves unconsciously. Master your emotions. Do not let insignificant persons dominate your thinking. It’s a waste of energy to your brain. Do not carry negative emotions because of terrible persons. That’s too foolish.
Those who attack you or offend you cannot take the most important thing away from you.
When you are unforgiving, you keep throwing that negative energy into yourself repeatedly. Forgiveness is about taking the power back by uprooting other people’s negative influence to ourselves. Anxiety, sorrow and regrets are part of negative emotions. Let go of anger out of self-love.
Let bygones be the bygones. Without forgiveness, there’s no future. There’s no another day. Because you live in the past. Your life stops moving forward and becomes stagnant.
Forgiveness does not absolutely mean that you have to accept that person again. Forgiveness means letting go of your anger.
Forgiveness shows that you are too strong to be offended or attacked by others’ words and behaviors. You show that others’ actions can’t affect your emotions or judgments about yourself.
