Want To Become A Better Person? You Need To Do This First.

It’s happened to both you and me. Someone did us wrong!

When somebody wrongs us, either by accident or on purpose, it can be extremely hard to get over it. In fact, we may never be able to reconcile with someone who has done us wrong.

That said, forgiveness is essential and it gives us a chance to heal and become a better person. Don’t get me wrong. Forgiving doesn’t mean that you’re excusing what someone did. It also doesn’t mean that you can’t still have strong feelings about what happened.

It may seem like you’ll never escape the emotions you feel when you’ve been wronged, but I truly believe that time heals all wounds. It’s super hard, but don’t rush the process. Give yourself space from the event that hurt you and focus on the present. You may never understand why they did what they did but it can sometimes help to try to see things through their eyes.

God wants us to realize that He is a God of “second chances.” If we have sinned or made mistakes in our lives, He offers the opportunity to be forgiven. Similarly, we must be willing to forgive others and offer them a second chance. In every area of our life, God offers us the opportunity to start over. 

Today, forgive those who might have sinned against you. Trust God! He will turn your defeats into victories!

“If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you.”

Matthew 6:14

    This article on forgiveness really hit home for me.
    Just this week I have been feeling hurt and left out over plans my best friend has made with a mutual friend which do not include me. I want to tell her how I feel but so far haven’t been able to bring myself to do it. I want to ask her how she would feel if the shoe was on the other foot…if I had made the plans and excluded her. In the meantime I just keep spiraling downward as the thoughts keep running through my head.
    I know… actually I have known all along what I need to do … which brings us back to forgiveness…
    Question is…do I still need to talk with her about this? Tell her how I’ve felt and that I do forgive her?
    Or do I just forgive and move on?
