"Forgiveness doesn't excuse their behavior. Forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart."
On this #MindfulMonday, as we begin the month of March, we take a look at forgiveness.
There is no doubt that forgiveness is a difficult process, and in most cases, more easily said than done.
Many times though, by failing to forgive, we only hurt ourselves further- we hold on to grudges and negative thoughts in a space we would much rather fill with kindness or good thoughts for ourselves.
In this article from Mindful Magazine, 8 Essential Steps to Forgiveness are discussed. This amazing mindfulness practice can help us to free up that space and move on from the hurt caused by others. While everyone's situation or process may be different, these eight steps are a great start to a pathway toward more positivity and a better outlook on life.
