Why Do People Find It So Hard To Forgive?

Why Do People Find It So Hard To Forgive?There is a little secret that you may need to be made privy to before you can discover the answer to the above question:  The main reason people say they can’t Forgive is because the are angry;  in reality, the reason they can’t Forgive is because they are HURT!  By taking a “posture” of anger, however, we feel that we are proceeding from a position of strength, where if we take a “posture” of being hurt, it appears, at least to us, that we are taking a position of weakness!

Once you reach the age of forty and continue to live beyond that point, you realize that life is too short not to Forgive.  We all have heard stories of family members who have allowed their hurt to prevent them from Forgiving and, as a result, they have spent a lifetime estranged from the very ones they should be the closest to.  Wisdom tells us we should Forgive, as quotes from these three very wise people show:

“The weak can never forgive.  Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.”    Mahatma Gandhi
Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.”      Indira Gandhi
To err is human; to forgive, divine.”      Alexander Pope

 

The ideal situation, of course, would be to teach the importance of Forgiveness to people while they are young – – children, in fact.  As parents and grandparents we do all that we can in this realm, but sometimes we need help.  There are others, of course, who also know that Forgiveness is possible, and not just in Fairy Tales.  

However, Fairy Tales Books for Kids may be an excellent way to teach the concept of Forgiveness.  And, if you like your Fairy Tales Illustrated, then Tales of the Kingdom Trilogy may be just the ticket for you!  Not only do they address Forgiveness, but a host of other life issues and characteristics as well!
