8 Important Reminders When You Are Finding it Hard to Forgive


This week we are going to talk about my favorite F word. . . forgiveness! I think we must always remind ourselves the importance of forgiveness. Forgiveness can bring us some of the most life altering and block busting lessons of our lives, but it is also the one thing that many of us resist. Forgiveness essentially is releasing someone or something that you perceive has harmed you in someway; it is a form of letting go, which we know can be very challenging. Forgiveness is also a massive form of healing and the ultimate act of love. As I was in the process of writing this post, I heard this quote from one of my favorite teachers, Gabby Bernstein, “Forgiveness is a gift you bestow upon yourself”.

Many of us know in our hearts that we must forgive our past, our harmers, and even ourselves, but our minds may tell us to hold onto grudges for protection. If you are in need of reminders on why forgiveness is so important, here are some I have for you:

  1. Remember that we are all just doing the best we can with what we have been given.
  2. Remember that holding on to grudges keeps you stuck in the past; release what’s happened and be hopeful for the present and the future.
  3. Remember that things happen for us not to us. Dive deep into what you can learn from the troubling situation.
  4. Remember that resisting forgiveness is a version of fear. Ask yourself, “What am I afraid of?
  5. Remember that forgiveness sets you free; you are strong and capable of letting go of the things that don’t serve you.
  6. Remember that forgiveness is a journey that takes time.
  7. Remember that even if you feel like you can never forgive, the simple act of being willing is enough.
  8. Remember that sometimes the biggest gift you can give is to forgive yourself.

I hope these little reminders help you! Also remember how much you are loved! If there is something you would like to forgive and share with us for support, let us know in the comments! Sending lots of love your way!
