Forgiveness Shows That You Are Too Strong to Be Invaded
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 disempower our energies and it can potentially trigger negative emotions ranged from resentment, anger, anxiety, sorrow, regrets, helplessness, hatred and even the idea of revenge.
Usually, the greatest enemy in our life is ourselves. Master your emotion and mater your life. If you keep letting yourself affected by other’s 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.
What’s the cost of hanging on to the anger persistently?
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.
If you keep letting yourself affected by other’s words, you become their slaves unconsciously. Do not let bad persons dominate your brain. Do not carry negative emotions because of terrible persons. That’s too foolish.
Anger steals your attention and energy. It also dominates your thinking and damages your judgment. Do not ruin your beautiful life because of foolish persons, terrible or insignificant persons.
Our every thought dictates our vision and direction. The angry soul makes bad decisions, and bad decisions lead to bad consequences and regrets.
What happens if we hold hatred at heart persistently? Anger is something very destructive to our brain and health. Why people seize on certain terrible memories and let it control their emotions and thinking for years or even decades? Hanging on to pain and suffering persistently is a symptom of self-abuse.
Being angry is a demonstration of persistent self-abusing. So, stop hurting yourself. Stop hurting your brain because of any terrible person. Nobody can hurt us more than ourselves.
Anger damages our judgment and leads to bad decisions.
Hanging on to pain and suffering is an unreasonable behavior which counters against rationality. Hang on to pain is a symptom of self-abuse. Why people seize on certain terrible memories and let it control their emotions and thinking for years or even decades?
“Vengeance is mine” (Biblical quotation, Deuteronomy 32:35. Romans 12:19.)
God’s watching over us. “Vengeance and punishments belong to God, not us.” I firmly believe that God knows everything. Do not loss your goodwill because of terrible persons.
We do not own the authority to punish anyone who commits wickedness but God. All the all-knowing God is given the authority to make judgments and do justice.
Sometimes a good heart can’t see the bad. Don’t blame yourself for being deceived. Condone their behavior by understanding that people might errors. People might get jealous, being mean or selfish and thus they do something racy or dirty to defend their self-interest. Keep distance from those who ruin our trust as a stranger rather than an enemy. Anger is something very destructive to our minds and health. Forgiveness can be generated out of compassion. We all make mistakes. Have mercy on them.
