Every moment brings with it the option of doing the same thing as yesterday, or trying something new; the choice is yours.

Forgiveness means different things to different people. Generally, however, it involves a decision to let go of resentment and thoughts of revenge. The act that hurt or offended you might always be with you, but forgiveness can lessen its grip on you and help free you from the control of the person who harmed you. Forgiveness can even lead to feelings of understanding, empathy and compassion for the one who hurt you.
When we hold onto a resentment, grievance, shame, guilt, or pain from the past, our entire body-mind suffers. Ultimately forgiveness is a gift we give to ourselves. We can benefit from forgiving even if the person we forgive isn’t aware of our feelings or is even no longer alive.
To forgive someone is the highest, most beautiful form of love. You might just find that you get a sense of peace and happiness in return.
