The Only Way out of the Labyrinth of Suffering Is to Forgive – John Green

Each and every person carries a little bit of baggage with them. The baggage can be anything – a certain way the person feels about themselves, issues with family, negative outlooks on their current or past situations in life. We all face hardships, and we tend to carry them around with us for days, months, or years to come.

If you feel like you’re carrying heavy baggage or suffering, it may be best to take a step back and figure out how to solve the problem that is causing the baggage. If a problem in our life can be solved to release weight off our shoulder, that’s great. However, in a lot of cases, we have problems that we don’t have control over and are unable to fix ourselves.

In the case where we can’t solve a problem, whether with ourselves, others, or a situation, it’s best to begin the process of letting go and forgiving. When we carry baggage around, the person it hurts most is ourselves. But if we attempt to forgive, we may feel a little bit lighter.

    Animals carry no baggage around with them. No “yesterday” or “tomorrow” or “when I was young” or “Someday” or “when I retire”. They live in the next more than the now.
    Animals are at peace with this.
    Me too.

  2. Good bit of advice sometimes easier said than done

  3. Some people have a lot of problem with forgiveness. Yet, they expect others to easily forgive them for their transgressions. In short, they reserve the right to harbor resentment yet are upset when others do the same. And therein lies the problem.

    Never hold onto resentment for more than a short time frame. Anything more than that will only work against you.

  4. Forgiveness is really hard but it is the start of self-healing.

  5. Very true and very well said

  6. What joy this brings. My one please request … can you make an easier to read font? Thank you!
