Forgiving Means Not Looking Back

Forgiving means not looking back

“If we really want to love, we have to learn to forgive.”

From an early age, I have been fortunate to grow by listening to the people who surrounded me and who loved me inside. This is how I started to learn one of the most important values ​​that make up people: forgiveness.

In childhood we absorb every possible thing, sensation, and lesson that will allow us to develop our feelings.


Our surroundings influence us, for better or for worse. In my case it was good. I was lucky and I’m happy to tell you why.

Every day of my life, since early childhood, my relatives and friends have taught me what is part of my emotional framework today: to forgive those who have hurt us.

Very soon I understood the importance of this value. When we forgive, we achieve inner peace with ourselves and, subsequently, with the world.

And believe this pillar of life is absolutely true. In many philosophies and religions it is said that the act of forgiveness transforms us into great spirits, gives us a big heart and great intrinsic worth. It is also said that the eternal comrade of adventure, oblivion, is the gift of the strong, and out of pure love these people value their own happiness.

Forgive and forget: two essential elements that each of us should use every day of our lives. Do you know why?

Little by little, I’ve learned that whoever harmed you is not going to turn into a better person than you. So you won’t be weaker than her if you forgive her. I’ve found that we notice that things stop hurting us when we can forgive and later forget about them. It is beneficial to forget and banish from your life those people who do not really love you and only want you bad.

Forgive 1

Invite your own heart to open up when someone apologizes and forgive them, even if it may seem difficult to you because the experience was very bad or painful for you. When you perform the act of forgiveness you will feel liberated and in balance with your own being. And that’s one of the best rewards in this life: the first step towards eternity.

To forgive sometimes puts us before the question: What happens if someone hurts me and doesn’t apologize for it?

I want to encourage you to take a moment to reflect with your heart. You will become aware that one day or another your own mind will forgive. Just don’t forget the importance of the ability to forget. Ultimately, it’s not worth it to suffer for someone who hasn’t been able to show that they value you.

When this situation arises, I want to pass on the precious feeling that you are much stronger because you are able to show what you value and because you have respect for yourself. And trust me, this is what is really important: respect and love for yourself. Without this, we cannot give love and consequently cannot live our life to the full.

Therefore, forgive and forget. These two components are key to tracking your personal development that has made the great person you are.

Living according to these values ​​will relieve you of the heavy burden of the backpack that you carry on your back and that does not allow you to look at the sky – the goal we all want and strive for.

I won’t say goodbye without reminding you that resentment will not win you anything, and neither will the person who harmed you. We can only change if we have the courage to forgive and forget.

Learn to accept the excuses when they come from the heart. If not, just forget about them and keep going your way. And always remember that forgetting means not looking back.

“Forgiveness is the virtue of the brave. Only he who is strong enough to forgive an attack can love. “

Mahatma Gandhi
