Hatred is a form of cancer that slowly kills its victim. The healing is free and simple: forgiveness. Yet, the patient wrongly thinks that revenge is the cure.
Forgiveness is simple. Note that I didn’t say it’s easy. It is simple because it only depends on one’s decision. Deciding to forgive is not complicated because my intelligence tells me that forgiveness is much more profitable than the high cost of resentment.
Once this simple decision is made, the difficulty in forgiving is reduced at each step:
1. Learn lessons from what happened
2. Stop thinking about what happened
3. Move on
4. Focus on positive things and changes
5. Be grateful that God deals mercifully with us despite our own mistakes
