Forgive Others to Gain Your Own Peace

Forgive others,
not because they deserve forgiveness,
but because you deserve peace.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Without forgiveness, we remain tethered to the person who harmed us.
We are bound with chains of bitterness, tied together, trapped.
Until we can forgive the person who harmed us,
that person will hold the keys to our happiness; that person will be our jailer.
When we forgive, we take back control of our own fate and our feelings.
We become our own liberators.
Forgiveness, in other words, is the best form of self-interest.
This is true both spiritually and scientifically.
We don’t forgive to help the other person.
We don’t forgive for others.
We forgive for ourselves.
– Desmond Tutu (Archbishop Emeritus and recipient of Nobel Peace Prize)

The key to forgiveness is to forgive from the heart –
not from the mind.
– Sheri Rosenthal

Forgive All From Your Heart

A wise one said, “We are most like God when we forgive.”
It is easy for us to blame, but hard for us to forgive.
Yet that is what we are called upon to do –
to forgive everyone for everything.
And the reward?
In this life, the reward for forgiveness
is your own happiness.
Unconditional universal forgiveness is
the key to your own happiness.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie
