Alexander Pope once said, “To err is human, to forgive, divine.”

Your willingness to forgive yourself and others is the greatest sign of your emotional and spiritual maturity. It’s a process of acceptance and understanding that allows you to let go of a situation that’s over so you are able to move on with your life.

The key is to be thankful for every single experience. It’s taking a step back and saying, “Thank you for the lesson.”

Take a moment and imagine if every person (including yourself) who owed you an apology apologized today, and imagine if you accepted these apologies. What a weight lifted. Now imagine if everyone, everywhere did this. How many challenges in the world might evaporate?

    Brilliant thought. Thank you for sharing it:-) This is one of the hardest tasks for a human to accomplish. Some of us will never even consider this option and will go throughout life with bitterness and resentments at heart. Some of us will be aware of this option but will choose to ignore it or procrastinate the completion of it. However, some of us will decide to take upon the challenge of forgiving and letting go, and those will become the happiest beings in the world:-)

    • Thanks Agatha for sharing your wonderful thoughts!
