I felt like a mess after I over-heard her telling our neighbor about my secrets. How can she do this to me? Sobbing I trusted her with my secrets as a friend, not knowing she had mouth diarrhea. Hmm, my life is scattered right now.

I will never forgive her for what she has done to me, for making me to cry. I don't even know how many people will hear of my nakedness before tomorrow is over. Will I be able to face them the next day?

Have you ever been disappointed or has a close friend ever let you let you now like what happened to my friend above? Has your parents, boyfriend, girlfriend or colleague ever said or done something to you that really hurt you? Have you had ever been abused by a very trusted friend? If you can answer yes to any of the questions then, you're not alone, I have experienced same several times.

We have all faced situations where possibilities of forgiving the offender was too slim. Mostly, because we felt that this people do not deserve to be forgiven.

I wish there was nothing like unforgiving because, I feel more pains than the person that offended me each time I fail to let go almost immediately.

Letting go of offense is an uncommon virtue for humans, thus, the popular saying. "To err is human and to forgive is Divine"
Each time you postpone forgiveness, it births grudges and bitterness and will eventually lead to hatred, then vengeance.

While trying to revenge, you see things like divorce, breakup, murder, sack and the likes which will only expand your bank of enemies.

I subscribe to Thomas Muller school of thought which stated that "He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself"

I will end this post when with a post from a popular speaker and author, John Mason;

When we forgive, we set two prisoners free, the forgiven and you.

Your Soulfriend

Hello @geekis

Holding a grudge is letting someone live rent free in your head

We have to constantly forgive those who offend us. Even the Bible says that bitterness dries up the bones.

So forgiveness is important for both you and the person who wronged you.

Universal truth, bro, keeping grudges is like making ourselves suffer an extended version of the pain that was caused in the first place.
