We all get angry; anger is a natural emotion. But it gets us in trouble when we hold on to it and it becomes resentment. Even if you are not in the place where you have forgiven the other person fully, it is often better to act “as if” you do and get on with your life. Here’s why.
1. Your energy is drained.
It takes a great deal from you if you are holding on, wasting energy that could be used for getting what you truly want.
2. You become part of the problem.
If you don’t let go, you are spewing negativity and you have probably stooped to the level of the person you are angry about.
3. The other person wins.
Don’t give the person in question the satisfaction that you continue to be pissed off and are letting them move in, rent-free, in your head.
4. You give off good vibes.
Forgiveness creates positivity. You are not walking around with the “darkness” that you have felt inside, and therefore can attract like-minded people.
