Anger towards another person or something that they’ve done will never do any harm for the other person, and it certainly won’t do any good for you. Anger does not serve anyone.
With that said, it doesn’t mean that anger is a bad emotion – when you feel angry it’s okay to be so, but holding onto it is just like Buddha once said – it just doesn’t make sense, and it’s only slowly going to kill you.
If you have been hurt by someone or treated badly, it’s not because of you – it’s entirely on the person that caused you the pain. And if they’ve already affected your life in a negative way, why would you allow them to keep doing it? No, best for yourself – for your own good – is to let them and the situation go. You need to try to find inner peace and allow yourself to be happy again.
When you are ready, know that forgiveness is like a warm, cozy blanket for your soul. Forgiving someone for what they’ve done doesn’t mean that you accept what they did to you, and it is certainly not a favor that you do for them – but something you do for yourself. We forgive for our own sake and well-being, in order to let go of the past that is no longer serving us, and in order to live a peaceful present and to seek a bright future.
So stop drinking that poison. Let go of the anger. Allow yourself to find happiness once again and to find gratitude towards where you are standing right now.
