Forgiveness: Is It Necessary? | #14


“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die.” – The Buddha 

But do we have to forgive in order to heal and move on from harm? I don’t think we do. 

This episode is all about CHOOSING from a place of EMPOWERMENT whether or not to forgive someone for harm done. Because that’s up to you and it’s not about them! You can heal and be happy with or without forgiving, and either option can be a valid choice in your process. If you do forgive, don’t forget. Forgetting means you won’t notice patterns of harm that continue over time. 

What about when it comes to forgiving YOURSELF for not being your best self in the past? We’re talking about that too! How can self-forgiveness help set you free from negative beliefs that you don’t deserve your success or happiness because of a past mistake?
