“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. ~Buddha.”
Human as we are, we are prone to be angry. Being angry is inevitable, nobody can avoid that. What is important is that we should be quick to forgive. But to forgive is not as easy as it is said. Often times, we want the other person to feel sorry (and if possible we want to hear it from them) before we learn to forgive. Some times, we pretend like it’s not affecting us, like feuding with someone is better than forgiving.
But we have to admit, holding grudges never brings peace to our mind. It’s like letting someone live rent-free in our head. Grudge is a very heavy thing to carry…But, when we FORGIVE, we release ourselves from a painful burden. Like what Corrie Ten Boom said, and I quote,
Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.
