To forgive is to heal

CTCA

to forgive is to heal

Could forgiveness help you? Forgiving another person for their hurtful actions or words is one of the most difficult acts any of us will ever do. It’s also one of the best. While you may feel that forgiveness lets the other person off the hook, it actually benefits you in powerful ways.

  • Helps reduce stress – and cortisol levels in your body, which has a cascade of effects on immune function, energy levels and your emotional well-being.
  • Lowers your blood pressure – yes, when you feel less angry your blood pressure goes down and your heart benefits.
    Improves your mental health – you’ll feel more positive and more in control of your emotions.
  • Supports your relationships – you’ll bring more understanding and happiness to your relationships now, instead of revisiting the energy of the past.

Remember, to forgive does not mean to forget. It only means that you accept what happened, and then decide to put your health and happiness first. No one said it was easy, but life’s unfair moments offer potent opportunities for transformation – and healing.
