Forgiveness is a Gift to Ourselves

Published June 28, 2012 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

I have been spending a lot of time reflecting on my life, lately.  I have made a lot of mistakes, and have wronged people in my life, but I feel, now that I am a good, kind, caring person.  Where once, I made decisions primarily for my own gratification, I now make my decisions on how my actions will affect someone else.  I really don’t want to do anything to cause anyone pain.  Being a forgiving person is the only way to find true happiness.  I forgive myself for the things I have done and I forgive others as well.  I mean if someone hurts me over and over I would definitely remove them from my life.  As Bishop T.D. Jakes said “if someone stomps on your foot over and over you are going to pull your foot away.”

I would prefer to be the type of person that helps to build someone up, rather than tear them down.

When I am no longer on this earth and I am spoken of I would like to bring a smile the faces of those who knew me.
