You may have asked the question, “Why should I forgive?” “Why should I let the person who’s hurt me off the hook and give them my life to trample on again?”
Well… because it frees you. It breaks the bond and the heaviness you’ve carried from the person who wounded you and gives you the chance to move forward in life without the bitterness or poor memories repeating itself through other relationships being harmed. You deserve to be free.
If you’re struggling with this issue and need someone to talk to please click the ‘chat with a SoulMedic” button at the top of the page. By keeping your issue a secret you are giving it power to destroy your life while it spreads as a cancer into your thoughts, actions, and relationships. Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. That’s not true! Life on life community is the best way for a person to flourish in their understanding of self, others and God. However, when we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence stronghold that feels true but is a lie really killing you from the inside out.
