40 Days of Forgiveness – Day 16 The Gift of a Better Future
Here is one of my favorite excerpts to experience the wonderful effects of forgiving another person and freeing yourself:
“Sometimes people are afraid that it is weak to forgive, that they are giving up a battle they must continue to fight.
But when we forgive, we are not giving up our value systems, our points of view about injustice, or our right to dislike someone.
We are giving up a rigid attachment to thinking that things could have or should have gone differently.
We are giving up the pain from our disappointed expectations.
We are giving up the hope for a better past, therefore giving ourselves the gift of a better future.”
~ Mary Hayes Grieco, Author of Unconditional Forgiveness
