Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace. – Jonathan Lockwood Huie
You should forgive others even if you think that they don’t deserve any of it. At times, the person on the other end might have done something so wrong that you cannot actually forgive that person.
However, give your best and forgive that person. Yes, you should always do that even if that other person has done very wrong with you. It is vital to do so, as that’s what would give you inner peace.
Even if the other person doesn’t deserve it, you should still be doing so, only to make sure that you aren’t stressing yourself about it all the while.
It is essential to understand that the wronged person might not deserve forgiveness, but there are certain situations when you get reminded of all that the person has done with you, at regular intervals.
This is common psychology and it will gradually become a stress factor for you. It is important to understand that you cannot cage yourself for such stupid people, who deserve absolutely no space in your life.
In such a scenario, it is required to make sure that you forgive that person and try to forget things. How long will you be remembering all that and hurting yourself?
In order to make sure that your mental peace is retained, it is high time that you try to forget those things and let them go!
There might be several situations when things are easier said than done, and it would probably seem to be impossible for you to let things go. However, you would still need to forget them and forgive their actions, only because you want to settle for your inner peace.
When you let people go on their own path, it is a kind of favor that you do to yourself. You simply try to forget those incidents and give yourself a second chance to refresh your mind.
Remembering them won’t make situations any better! Hence, the only way to escape from your own mind’s cage is to let those things go! You cannot get back to the past and change the situation all over again, nor can you ask those undeserving souls to get good all by themselves.
Thus, the only way by which you can avail some inner peace is to forgive them and start your life all over again.
Try not to remind yourself of such incidents anymore, just consider them to be some of the cruelest sections of your life. Turn the pages, and get going with the book of life.
