“…. and forgive us our trespasses.” 

Forgiveness. One of the hardest things in the world. I tell you, forgiving is never easy. Especially when you are hurt by someone you really care about. It hurts like a bitch. But the thing is, forgiveness is necessary for healing. Until you let the pain and anger go, you never truly move on. You see, not forgiving is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die. It simply does not work that way. When you hold pain and anger against someone, the person is living his life untouched by your negative emotions. It’s your breath that quickens when you spot the person. Your face contorts at the mention of the person’s name. And in effect, you aren’t forgiven till you forgive. Anytime you say the Lord’s Prayer, you say “…and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us”  You tell God explicitly that I’ve forgiven my neighbor so forgive me. So unless you forgive, you’re not forgiven. It’s a hard thing to do but it’s not impossible. Trust me, I’ve been there. The second you forgive, you feel light and you feel like a humongously humongous load has been taken off your chest.  Start letting those things go. It’s good for your health.
