How Forgiveness Is Imperative To Deep Emotional Healing + 4 Healing Forgiveness Affirmations


“If we really want to love we must learn how to forgive.” ~ Mother Teresa

Forgiveness means that we choose to Love. Love MORE than we choose to hate or hurt.

Among all the ways of counseling I offer, I also offer family therapy to families to heal from issues that are eating away at their core happiness. In one such recent session, there was SO much negativity coming out of every member of the family, which was making the whole atmosphere very very tense. The key was ofcourse a past event that had triggered and hurt many of the members of the family. After gently proposing “forgiveness with love” of self and all those involved…and applying it, I could see the whole family calm down. But, forgiveness is a hard pill to swallow.

I often get asked, “But how can I forgive, when it hurts so much?”

The Challenge to Live a Phenomenally Miraculous Life

One of my all time favorite quote by Albert Einstein is, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.” 

At first I thought, wow, pretty black and white, Mr. Einstein… What’s wrong with somewhere in the middle? Certainly everything is not a miracle. But over time as I have continued to ponder over the words of this quote, I have been pleasantly surprised at how miraculous our life really is!

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await another voice.’ ~ T. S. Eliot

As the year end inches closer and closer, I find myself introspecting a whole lot. I find myself thinking about the year in terms of achievements, high points, low points, successes, failures, learning points etc. Introspection and a constant need to be a better more evolved human(e) being makes me think of the year that’s gone by in a learning light.
