Blog PostForgiveness, Apologies and moving on.

As I live in this life, I learn a lot. One of the most important lessons I have learned is Forgiveness. I believe that forgiveness is very essential in our lives to move forward. Without it, we end up in sorrow and pain. Forgiveness is letting go the pain, yet framing that memory to learn from it. But never let its emotions control us.

Generally, we don't forgive because we take positions regarding who is wrong and because the other person never apologizes, or our pride takes over and we never apologize.

In this post, I want to tackle on two points, apologizing and accepting apologies.

Sorry seems to be the hardest word.


As the above quote states, Sorry is the hardest word. But if it's our mistake, the right thing to do is to apologize, to say sorry and try to make it up. It sets things straight, though it's hard, and like taking away our pride and ego, but it is the right thing to do.

Accepting an apology

We always have to understand, as apologizing is not easy, it's very hard, taking away pride and ego, and since that person came to say that they are sorry and wanna make it up for you, you must accept the apology. Accepting the apology doesn't mean that we forget, but we forgive, forgiveness is letting go the anger, letting go the bad feelings.

A quote I posted some time ago:

Forgiveness is the perfume a flower leaves on the shoe that crushed it.

Many things in this world are lost between understanding that was not intended, and intentions that were not understood. Keeping that in mind, we can let go anger, and find excuses for others. Doing good brings back good, a while back I wrote about good deeds, I would recommend if you take few minutes to read that post.
