Do you want to be healthier? Think forgiveness. It is the ability to release past hurts, failures, sense of guilt, and loss from your mind. You accept responsibility for your own perceptions, realizing they are a choice and not an objective fact. Forgiveness does not condone negative inappropriate behavior in any person or pretend that everything is okay when it isn’t. It is a gift you give to yourself, a way to stop harboring destructive feelings that sap health and happiness. The act of forgiving allows your body to turn down the manufacture of catabolic chemicals and instructs your subconscious to banish negative feelings from your mind. When you say, “I forgive you” you’re also saying, “I choose to be healthy.” Remember, forgiveness has little to do with others and everything to do with you.
