If you suffer with anxiety disorder, an anxiety attack can feel very much like a heart attack. That’s because anxiety attack symptoms are similar in many ways to a heart attack. A panic attack is a less serious version of an anxiety attack, but is equally alarming to the person experiencing it. What is the difference […]
To free your heart from pain, you need to forgive others. And you need to forgive yourself! Forgiveness brings freedom to the heart and soul from pain. It’s a clarity of life, and understanding of others. Its grace given to humans so that they can go to the next higher level of being.
Forgiveness takes courage.
It’s not naive to forgive. It’s not the idea, “Forgive and forget.”
Forgiveness is the letting go of past suffering. It’s a release of pain and hate. But you don’t forget that pain or hate. Nor should you. Because once you’ve experienced those emotions, you have empathy and compassion for others who are in similar situations. You become unwilling to attack or harm others the same way you’ve been hurt.
Forgiveness takes time. Forgiveness isn’t easy, so it doesn’t happen quickly. There’s a process of grief, outrage, sadness, loss, and pain you must go through first. True forgiveness doesn’t paper over what happened. It’s not a suppression of pain. It’s a path through the pain to the other side. It’s the freedom of the heart once true forgiveness is achieved.
So don’t be stuck in anger and pain. Forgive yourself and forgive others.
You’re stronger than you believe!
