THE BEST REVENGE

I can't remember how many times I told someone, " I forgive you", and whenever I remember or talk about what he/she did, I still feel hurt. Sometimes I feel very bitter and I ask myself, "why ?" Well, the answer is simple, it's because I'm still yet to forgive.

But the twist is when you're angry about what someone did to you, the other possibility is that someone is also angry about what you did too. And that takes us back to the first quote I shared earlier that verifies that forgiveness is inevitable.

Looking at the first quote that talks about forgiving yourself first, to me that's one of the greatest joy of forgiveness. You can't continue to be hard on yourself for your past mistakes. Yes, you've to learn from them but you can't continue to harbour regrets and feel miserable. It's not worth it at all.

I've heard a lot of sermons and messages on forgiveness but there's one that I always remember, which is,  "the best revenge is letting go and moving on with your life". Sometimes I ask myself, " what kind of revenge can I take on those who have offended me that will erase the bad memories ?", I couldn't find any. So my dear friend, as difficult as you may think it is, the best thing to do is to let go and move on with your life.

 And finally, another quote that struck my heart was ; "Blame them for what they've done, but bless them for making you stronger and better". Don't let those bad memories determine your future, instead see it as a stepping stone to the next level. xoxo
