Learning to forgive is in our best interest. To forgive someone doesn’t mean their actions were right, but it is an amazing act of kindness and is liberating. Holding on to hurt feelings and anger make us prisoners of the past and trap us in a dark place.
“The duty of one seeking enlightenment is to culture the quality of forgiveness, which is illuminating like the sun. The Supreme Lord, Hari, is pleased with those who are forgiving. – Bhāgavata Purāṇa 9.15.40
