If you are able to feel hurt, you are also able to heal that hurt. When someone has angered you, or frustrated you, annoyed you, offended you or made you feel hurt in some other way, you too have been an active participant in that hurt. That's not to say that what they did was right or that it is excusable. It wasn't and it isn't.
Still, your best strategy is to get past it. The hurt you feel is all yours to the extent that you've chosen to experience it. So make the choice to stop experiencing it.

Forgiveness is far more beneficial for you than for the person you are forgiving. So by all means practice it! The longer you delay your forgiveness, the more you are victimized by the original transgression.

No matter how ill intentioned are the actions of another toward you, your forgiveness signals that you are not willing to participate in your own victimization. It's a powerful strategy. Forgive, and make your life more positive, productive, joyful and fulfilling.

-- Ralph Marston


  1. Just was stumbling around the net and came across your blog. Wanted to let you know I think it's great! Love the content! You're doing a good thing with the subject of mental health. Bravo! :)

  2. The forgiveness and calmness is better for mind. And so its good for health. Many diseases as hemorrhoids needs hemorrhoids treatment and mind's confidence and calmness to cure the diseases earlier.

  3. Ya nice post and comment there its true that many diseases as toenail fungus
    needs Nail Fungus Treatment and the confidence which comes from mind to cure the disease.

  4. This is a nice peice of writing, it made me think of the song "Alone Again" by Alyssa Reid feat. P. Reign. Its an amazing song

  5. To be honest, it is really difficult for me to forgive others. I am always having grudges on people very readily and it is slowly but surely consuming me inside out. Not forgiving others also hurt ourselves and I got to say it's not a very nice things. Trying my best to change but thank you so much for your article. I will keep it in mind.
