Are You Unforgiving?

I just ran across another one of my slips of papers where I had jotted down something I read about forgiveness. I think this is probably one of the hardest things to do when you feel as though you have been wronged in some way. I have found these to be very helpful when I have been in that position.
~Being willing to unforgive is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

~Unforgiveness is a form of self abuse.

~ Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past would have been different.

to forgive is to be able to go forward without anger.

Not forgiving someone takes too much energy. I'd rather forgive and be able to move on.

Have a good week.

I tend to hold grudges for a really long time. I don't know why, but I do. Part of me doesn't want to let go or forget, either, despite knowing it's unhealthy. Oh well. I'll learn. Somehow.
