Letting anger and bitterness stay with you could be harmful not just to your future relationships but your health as well.
Who says you can’t let go of the past, forgiving others who have hurt you and making yourself a better person? Giving yourself to happiness and seeing the brighter side of every hurt you may have experienced is one of the first steps towards forgiveness and forgetting your past.
Here are a few steps listed by Women’s Health Mag on how to forgive, forget and be happy:
Wish them Happiness: Always wish happiness for the person who has harmed you. At the same time you are wishing all well for yourself, too. Releasing your anger will set your mind and soul free.
Gratitude Exercises: Focus on seeking happiness inside out. Make some gratitude exercises. Any time you feel that everything in the world has done to you wrong, start making a list of the topped appreciated aspects of your life. This is a good practice to keep you focused on positive things.
Learn a Lesson: Consider the difficulties as a lesson. The bigger misfortunes bring you closer to enlightenment. All of your life`s bad events are tests of your character. Ask yourself, what these problems test you for, patience, forgiveness, compassion or open-mindedness. Your future task is to develop them step by step. Distancing yourself from similar harmful situations will help you to learn and not to be a victim.
Maintain Perspective: Remind yourself that this specific event is only a part of your life, not your “whole” life. Don’t let the problematic event overwhelm you. And stick to the phrase- “The best is yet to come!”
Let go the Anger: Always remember that when you resent someone, you are hurting yourself, and you are also giving the person control and power over you.
Stay Positive: Try to recognize when you respond with anger to anger, bitterness to bitterness and hate to hate. You are not coming better, actually you are becoming part of the problem. Make all the effort to remain the old loving, happy, warm person.
Get Revenge, but positively: The best revenge is actually living a successful and happy life. Your positive energy will attract more positive people. Always stick to the phrase-“You cannot solve a problem by staying in the same energy in which it was created“.
