I heard him say to his female companion as they parted ways this morning.
I had been walking alongside them for a while so I recognized that they were friends, but I am not sure what exactly was behind his snippet.
It churns up all sorts of things.....one of which is the affect that anger and unforgiveness has on a person.
The only positive it has had for me is the motivation to grow and learn from a negative, unforgiving experience.
I, as we all do, have had many instances in life where I have held on to anger and unforgiveness due to an alleged wrong that had been done to me and/or someone I love.
“It is not fair!”
“They are not going to get away with that!”
And other snippets that have gone thru my head a millions times...all ending with the same physical scenario....
A stomach ache and the overall horrible feeling that stress puts on me.
All because of anger, unforgiveness and now that I am writing this, I also want to throw in the desire to GET EVEN, that I allow to well up inside of me.
When I let my anger go and forgive, seriously, wholeheartedly FORGIVE (not forget) a person or a situation....
I get back my power – which I unrightfully gave away to unforgiveness and anger.
And it feels great!
