Forgiveness is a key part of our emotional and spiritual evolution.

Forgiveness is a key part of our emotional and spiritual evolution.

When we fight off forgiveness we tend to lock ourselves in an
emotional prison with the person we refuse to forgive. Even holding
onto a simple or silly grudge is only bound to hurt the one who is
holding on to it. We asked our readers: "What is the best advice anyone
every gave you about forgiveness?" Most agreed that forgiving is the
path to better health and peace.

well first thank you for the intersting topic
forgivness is something hard
for me it dosn't mean forgetting the person's mistakes but trying to move forward and realize what is happening around you ،what kind of people you should deal with in the comming futur
sometimes we can forgive easily and this depends on people and what kind of mistakes they made
to say i forgive you is not enough we have to mean it
at the end forgivness in good for our mental and physical integrity
you are talking also about revange which is Completely different from the forgiveness topic it is a kind of Contradiction
if you are thinking of forgivness just forget about revange
