What is forgiveness?

It is the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven.

If you want to become successful in life or in business, learn how to forgive.

Walking in forgiveness. You must learn to forgive yourself and others.

You must forgive yourself and forgive those who have hurt you. Do not let the spirit of unforgiveness control your heart. Forgiveness brings freedom and joy.

The spirit of unforgiveness is like a cancer in the body and has the potential to destroy if not dealt with immediately.

Forgive yourself first then forgive others. It is not about others but YOU. Free yourself then enjoy life and your work.

Forgiveness helps you overcome fear.

Forgiveness can help to repair and restore relationship.

That is a hard one to do but must be done. It's like setting yourself on fire to hurt the other person. That other person has power over you until you set yourself free. It took me a long time to GET it but it is a great feeling when it happened. It's like a weight lifted. Too bad my scale didn't show that weight gone but hey, small victories right?

One of the greatest stagnating "stagnator" is lack of forgiveness. Especially against yourself. And you know what, it is like tying yourself to the past, you don't forgive yourself in the future tense right?it is usually in respect to the past error(s) that you have committed. When you don't forgive yourself, you deprive yourself of thinking forward, so you don't move forward eventually. Forgive yourself and you'll be able to forgive others. I love this. Thanks for the post.
