Do you have someone in your life you need to forgive?
Have you ever heard the old adage ‘forgiveness is like shooting yourself in the foot and expecting the other person to get hurt’?
Many of my clients are blindsighted when I ask them if there is someone in their life they have yet to forgive.
It is much more difficult to live a life filled with peace and contentment when the mere thought or mention of someone’s name could stir up feelings of resentment, anger, and hurt.
Forgiveness is something we do for ourselves instead of for the person who wronged us.
It does not mean we condone what that person did. It just means that we are ready to take our power back and release the negative energy that has been damaging us at a cellular level.
Unforgiveness is classified in medical books as a disease, according to Dr. Steven Standiford, chief of surgery at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. He insists that refusing to forgive people who’ve done you wrong makes people sick and keeps them that way.
According to Clara Leon Naum, the author of ‘The Real Meaning of the F Word’ 61% of cancer patients have forgiveness issues. She also found 57 well documented cases of terminal cancer patients who chose to release their anger, resentment and depression, and then became cancer free. They were considered miracles. Furthermore, she found that extreme suppression of anger was the most commonly identified characteristic among 160 breast cancer patients.
