Another Helpful Forgiveness Hint

We sometimes think that those who hurt us have far more control over us than they actually do. We often measure our happiness or unhappiness by what has happened in the past.
My challenges to you today are these: Your response of forgiveness now to the one who hurt you can set you free from a past influence that has been toxic. Try to measure your happiness by what you will do next (not by what is past). Your next move can be this—to love regardless of what others do to you.

    Forgiveness gives us back some control over our own lives. As we forgive, we are not held hostage by another’s bad behavior.

    Even if the offender never admits to wrong or will not accept an offer of forgiveness, the one forgiving can have peace.
