TimelyTip for Your Health: Forgive

Why forgive?

Forgiving others and ourselves releases us from the past. When we make all of our decisions based on past experiences if our pat experiences are negative, then what we will be experiencing in the present will be hurtful or negative. As long as we hold on to the past we cannot live in the present.

Release guilt so your life can help you move forward.  It takes a lot of energy to hold on to people who have hurt you. Negative emotions like anger, guilt, fear, frustration, and resentment can attach the body and cause illness. Chronic negativity alters our nervous system functions and suppressed our immune system. And this can lead to problems that include more frequent colds and flus, fatigue, hypertension, stroke, asthma, and migraines, and cancer just to name a few of the illnesses.   

When we make peace of mind our goal, we take responsibility for our own happiness—that’s what heals.  When we forgive, it’s a voluntary gift of mercy to the other person. Forgiveness is not something we do, forgiveness is something we experience.  Forgiveness is healing.

Practice forgiveness.  You’ll live longer,  happier and healthier.
