I’m angry. They wronged me, why should I forgive them?

They lied, they cheated, why should I forgive them?

Forgiveness is not a gift that we give to someone else.

Forgiveness for another’s act is a gift that we give ourselves.

We are the one who suffer  the anger when we feel that we have been wronged.

It is our own blood pressure that rises when we hold on to resentment.

Give yourself the gift of forgiving others, not because “they” deserve it,

but because you deserve the serenity  that comes from releasing resentment and anger.

Life is too short to hold on to resentment.
