Week 36: I Forgive You…
Today, I decided to forgive you.
Today, I liberate myself from the pain you have caused in my life. Yes, in my life.
But first, let’s define what the meaning of “forgive” is.
“Forgive” is a verb that means: “stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake”.
Yes, today I forgive you.
Well, according to the Mayo Clinic, “forgiveness brings with it plenty of health benefits, including improved relationships, decreased anxiety and stress, lower blood pressure, a lowered risk of depression, and stronger immune and heart health. Letting go of negative emotions can often have a remarkable impact on the body”.
Have been 10 weeks since I started this wonderful, sometimes painful journey of self-discovery and realization with the people of MKMM, and I may add that I finally decided to let it go.

That is the reason I forgive you.
