5 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD FORGIVE

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘forgive and forget’, but sometimes that can be the hardest thing to do. If someone has hurt you, it can be difficult to move past that – but you should. It isn’t for the sake of the other person; it’s for the sake of your own mental well-being.

Here are five reasons why you should forgive the person who you are angry at.

 
1. It isn’t fun to live in the past

There is no point in continuously thinking about past events; what is done is done and it can’t be changed. Focusing on the past will only make you bitter and resentful, and the other person probably won’t even realize how upset you still are by the event. Move on for your own sake – being bitter is like buying poison and then taking it yourself!

2. Forgiveness doesn’t have to mean forgetting

If someone really hurt you, you don’t have to forgive them and become friends again. Maybe they let you down or broke your trust – either way you don’t have to be their friend again. You are forgiving them for your own happiness, not for theirs.

3. Everyone makes mistakes

Everyone gets caught up in a lie or a mistake at one point in their lives. Often these events can escalate and build, and a good person can end up doing something bad. No-one is perfect!

4. Compassion is important

At some point in your life, you will have wished that someone offered you compassion and understanding. Compassion isn’t a sign of weakness; it is a sign of strength and love.

5. Because you deserve to be happy

Simple but true!

“People have to forgive. We don’t have to like them, we don’t have to be friends with them, we don’t have to send them hearts in text messages, but we have to forgive them, to overlook, to forget. Because if we don’t we are tying rocks to our feet, too much for our wings to carry!” – C. JoyBell C

QUOTES ABOUT LAZINESS

Everyone is lazy sometimes! Here are a few quotes about laziness – what do you think of them? Do you disagree with any, or do any ring true with you? Let me know with a comment 🙂

“Progress isn’t made by early risers. It’s made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.” Robert A. Heinlein

“So avoid using the word ‘very’ because it’s lazy. A man is not very tired, he is exhausted. Don’t use very sad, use morose.

“If your dream is a big dream, and if you want your life to work on the high level that you say you do, there’s no way around doing the work it takes to get you there.” Joyce Chapman

“Failure is not our only punishment for laziness; there is also the success of others.” Jules Renard

“How often do you find yourself saying, “In a minute”, “I’ll get to it” or “Tomorrow’s good enough” and every other possible excuse in the book? Compare it with how often you decide it’s got to be done, so let’s get on and do it! That should tell you just how serious your procrastinating problem really is.” Stephen Richards

“Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.” Anne Frank

“Both positive and negative thinking are contagious.” Stephen Richards

“Folks who never do any more than they get paid for, never get paid for any more than they do.” Elbert Hubbard

“When we hold back out of laziness, that is when we tie ourselves into knots of boredom.” Walter Annenberg
