Forgiveness is Freedom

Forgiveness is Freedom via 10689869_10152292437561507_6378464314442995513_nDaily Prompt: Blindly

Forgiveness is such a strong word. It has the ability to set you free in both body and mind. To have unforgiveness in your heart is to liken it to being in jail. Unforgiveness makes you its prisoner, you become your own worst enemy. You actually give the other party a firm hold over you. That person has all the power over you without even realising it and you find yourself the victim all over again. The bitterness builds up inside you and it actually makes you sick. To walk around blindly in the darkness of unforgiveness and not see the beauty of life around you.

It is all about having a positive attitude in life. It takes a lot to forgive the other party but in reality it is more for you than for them. It frees up your mind and releases all bitterness in your heart. Why do you want to go around being unhappy and bitter with life? So, somebody upsets you, cheats on you, hurts you and generally life gives you a hard kick in the butt and gut. How else are we going to learn life’s lessons, how else are we going to get wise and grow as a person. Yes, it hurts like crap but eventually forgiving the other party allows you to move on in life. It gives you the necessary peace of mind.

I have had unforgiveness in my heart and had to learn to forgive (not necessary to forget) and it felt like a weight off my shoulder. And it felt great not be bitter and unhappy. It was hard and took awhile but I did it and so can you.

Forgiveness is freedom. It is your own choice whether to accept the hurtful deeds or words into your heart. Do you want to? Or do you want to let it just wash over you like water on a duck’s back?

Do you want to be the victim or do you want to be free?

Life is way too short and interesting to let unforgiveness rule you. Let it go. Release it all.

Now is the time of my life and I intend to make the most of it.
