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.

Why?

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”.
