Forgiveness is about us first and the other other person second. You see, if we can’t forgive ourselves first for putting ourselves in a position where another person did us an injustice or harmed us in any way, we can never forgive the other person. Forgiving myself is the first action I must take if I want to forgive the other person and enjoy the immense benefits that forgiveness gives me.
Forgive means to: 1. grant pardon for an offense ; to absolve; to set free from punishment. 2. to cease to feel resentment against yourself or others.
When I forgive myself I am set free to create what I want rather than being filled with feelings of resentment, anger and fear that stops me from creating what I want. The unwillingness to forgive myself for my mistakes makes ‘nasty feelings’ stick to me like SUPER GLUE.
The reason forgiveness works so powerfully in making me feel energetic and brand new again is because I know, the moment I forgive myself, God does too.
