Don’t forget to forgive. Forgiveness can be difficult, but learning how to incorporate it into your life can be good for your health (Erin Johnson).
As Johnson suggests, there may be times when it can be really hard to forgive someone who has hurt you deeply. Yet, the personal experience of many has demonstrated that failing to forgive is more painful for them than for their offender. Furthermore, after forgiving someone, the restored relationship may offer long-lasting good for both parties.
Love prospers when a fault is forgiven, but dwelling on it separates close friends (Proverbs 17:9).
