Forgiveness is not an option it's a necessity to live a full life. I've heard others say, "Why should I forgive them?"
If you were poisoned and you went to the hospital; they extract the poison from your body so that you might live. The poison of forgiveness will surely kill you just like the poison, if not extracted.
Forgiveness is the way to extracted this poison from your mind, body and soul.
Forgiveness does not excuse what someone has done to you, it doesn't mean you will forget it. What it means is that you have taken control of the situation, addressed it, dealt with it and then moved forward.
Forgiveness doesn't make you week but the vile taste of hate and resentment will. Don't do this to yourself.
Forgiveness is a God given gift use it often!
May you open your soul to the universe,
