June 26 is Forgiveness Day. It’s a time to forgive others … and ourselves.
Most people probably love this idea. It’s a wonderful concept. Unfortunately, the act of forgiving can be surprisingly difficult.
When we feel someone has wronged us, it is far too easy to hold a grudge. With that comes anger, resentment and bad feelings that won’t go away on their own. Letting go of these feelings tends to be a true challenge.
Some grudges go on for so long that we don’t even remember why they started. It may seem like those negative feelings have always been there. Still, we’d be much better off without them.
