Forgiveness is a gift.
A gift for both the giver and the receiver.
Pride sometimes gets in the way of taking responsibility for one's own actions or owning one's part in the conflictual interaction.
Why are we as humans so stubborn? Why do we cheat ourselves out of serenity and comfort only to dig into our stance and try to prove how right we are? When people do this they remain isolated, angry and resentful which hurts themselves.
Who might you choose to forgive?
What would it take for you to forgive today?
What is preventing you from making this step?
What would be the benefits for you and the other if you offered the olive branch?
Make the gesture to reach out today.
What a gift to you and the other.
