I wish I could write as beautifully as Melinda Tyler on this subject… after reading her post on forgiveness I was forced to think about why I couldn’t let myself to forgive others, especially me. The answer was and still is out of my reach. Maybe it’s because I am too busy with being angry. As I said before I have a really bad temper issue. Though I’m working on it the results are not very pleasing. Anger harms only you.

For the last couple of days I’ve done nothing but to blame myself for everything that’s gone wrong with me and the people around me. To be honest if I have spent half the time thinking about the solution rather then the problem I wouldn’t be in this position right now.

Why do I regret so much?

Yes, forgiveness is an art, almost close to a noble virtue. Forgiving the ones who deserve it can not only help you clean up old mess but also can help you find inner peace. And I can really use that right now.

Dear readers, I suggest that you start thinking about forgiveness. It may help you more than you expect.


  1. A challenge for you today, sit down and write TWO things you are grateful for today. Tomorrow three. Keep doing this on a daily basis, each day adding one thing that you are grateful for.

  2. ok...i'll give it a try

    2. helped my brother in math.(does it count?)

    thanks ann

  3. Forgiveness is the best thing you can do, and it even applies to yourself. Things in the past can't be changed, and holding anger towards others or towards yourself doesn't do anything to help matters. It took a long time, but I finally said that I forgive myself for the mistakes I have made in the past, because without them, I wouldn't be where I am and who I am today. And I forgive others because I am tired of carrying the weight of their mistakes with me.

  5. It's not easy to forgive, really. event harder to forgive first. It's natural, cause not only anger plays part here but also ego.
