Being unable to forgive ourselves and others; we spend useful time thinking about what could have been instead of planning on what could be.
Forgiveness is not an easy process, it is an active process in which you make a conscious decision to let go of revenge, anger, and resentment from those who cheated on us, who wronged us or who abused us.
Doing this is for our benefit because some of the people that have wronged us do not even care if they are forgiven or not, they have moved on.When we embrace the act of forgiving ourselves and others we allow hope, peace, love, and happiness to reign in our lives. Click To Tweet
These are 3 ways to forgive yourself first and then others for past mistakes:
❖ Sealing off the forgiveness by talking to the person who wronged you or writing about it in a journal.
❖ Forgiving the person because you understand that no one is perfect and that we are all human beings.
❖ Showing empathy to the person who wronged you.
When we embrace the act of forgiving ourselves and others we allow hope, peace, love, and happiness to reign in our lives.
In conclusion, as retirement is our last chance to live a fun-filled purposeful life, we should not allow unforgiveness and sadness to define us.
