Being able to forgive someone when they do something you perceive as wrong is a really, really, really valuable tool. 

I know sometimes this seems really hard, but I did read something today I thought I would share that makes this concept a little easier to put into practise...

"Forgive them, even when they are not sorry."

It is actually unnecessary for someone to ask for your forgiveness in order for you to grant it. In fact, the act of forgiveness is NOT about the other person at all; they may not even realise they have done something to offend, upset or hurt you.

The act of forgiveness is actually about you and the best thing for you. Making the effort to forgive someone their actions, such as someone cutting you off when driving, a person who brushed passed you without saying sorry, someone who took for granted that you would do something for them and other things like this, is actually about making more of an effort to walk away from judging another person for their choices.

If you choose not to forgive, then you choose to carry anger around with you and to hold onto the act you saw as negative. The person hurt most by this choice is you.

With love and light
