Have you ever had a hard time getting over something hurtful that somebody has done to you? Being able to forgive the people who may have hurt you is a huge step to healing spiritually and emotionally. It is unavoidable during the course of our lives, to at some point, not get let down by others. Although these disappointments can cause us all a lot of distress and heartache – with faith, it could also help mold us into better people; the most positive result of this is, we could grow to be more compassionate, caring and Christ-like. We can also can learn beneficial life lessons about what really matters to us and others.
What I’m trying to explain is – you won’t be able to avoid disappointments – but what’s most important is how you ultimately decide to deal and react to them. All of your reactions will have consequences, eventually determining whether you will be able to heal and move on, or allow negativity to fester and drag down your emotions for the long run. Secondly, it is significant to realize that –
Now that you can realize that every encounter that we have could possibly lead us into an important lesson, take a moment to think about the people who have hurt you. Have you ever forgiven them? Or are you the type to hold a grudge? Are you vengeful for those who have caused you pain, or worse still, have you acted out with violence, bitterness and hate because of what they did to you? Would you ever be able to let go of anger, or from anyone holding you back from happiness? Who really holds the power if you cannot move on from whatever happened in the past – you or them?
When you allow feelings of bitterness, rage or hostility to adhere to your daily life, you will establish destructive emotions that WILL rub off to everyone you encounter and it will block you from enjoying positive and healthy relationships with others.
Negative energy and emotions can go away if you want it, or it can stay and grow and tie you down rendering your personal life immobile. Unresolved emotional pain and stress can manifest bad attitudes, depression, insomnia, and more. Anger can literally MAKE YOU SICK. This said, what will you do today? Will you choose to be happy and try forgiveness? Don’t give your energy away to those who don’t deserve the time of day! Move on with your life, clear your emotions of that negativity, and you can experience a more positive life.
