Each day, I see the benefits of offering forgiveness to others. I see how it helps to put someone’s mind at ease. I know that granting my forgiveness to another helps them move on with a light heart and clear conscience.
I feel rewarded when I forgive someone for offending me. I am happy to have the opportunity to resume a positive relationship with them.
Sometimes it is challenging to overlook an offense. When I am hurt, I initially feel unwilling to give my trust back to someone. But I take the time to think it through.
I believe in my role as protector of good in the world. Even when I am mistreated, I put aside my pride. I know it takes two to resolve any conflict.
Forgiveness gives me a stronger sense of purpose.
I choose to be a bigger person who learns from negative experiences. I shun the chance to hold onto something that keeps my heart dark.
I am a good example for my loved ones because I practice forgiveness. I am proud to be a role model.
Today, I acknowledge that forgiveness builds me up. I strive to make amends. I am poised to be strong and positive because I choose to forgive others.
