Affirmations & Reflections

Forgiveness
makes my world a safer place. Letting go of resentments protects my physical
and mental health.

 

Pardoning
others helps me to overcome self-pity.
I learn to view myself as a survivor. I handle
disappointments and carry on with my responsibilities.

 

Resolving
conflicts brings me peace. When my mind is at ease, I have more energy to
devote to the activities that are meaningful to me.

 

Practicing
forgiveness strengthens my relationships.
My friendships become more durable. I am able
to interact effectively with a broader range of co-workers and neighbors. This
gives me more support and opportunities to grow.

 

I know
that forgiveness is a process. Sometimes it is easy. Sometimes I work hard at
it.

 

When I
find myself unwilling to forgive, I pray and meditate. I think about the
benefits of opening my heart.

 

In
challenging situations, I approach forgiveness gradually.
I put myself in the other
individual’s position to try to understand their actions. I wish them well even
if I continue to disagree with their decision.

 

I
distinguish between pardoning others and being a doormat. When I forgive
someone for any trouble they may have caused me, I enable myself to transform
our relationship. We may grow closer or we may move on to new situations that
are better for both of us.

 

Today, I
discover safety and freedom through forgiving myself and others.
