You like to fight for justice and you’re tempted to seek vengeance whenever someone has wronged you. You can hold a solid grudge too. This lack of compromise could be affecting your wellbeing and the contempt is certainly costing you your peace. In tough times, remind yourself that by choosing to forgive someone else, you’re creating more inner peace for yourself. Try using guided kindness meditations to work on accepting and loving yourself, as well as others in your life, even those you struggle with the most.
When you believe you’ve been treated unfairly, you’re able to sit with the emotions rather than escalate a situation and become reactive.
You often make the wise choice to digest what’s going on and learn what you can from the experience as you forgive, as opposed to feeling disgruntled and dwelling on it. Forgiveness is tough, and just saying the words isn’t enough. It’s a verb that requires action. Continue to release negativity and practice kindness towards yourself, and others, as you move through the process of forgiving.
It’s not in your nature to harbour a grudge and you believe in granting second chances. But at times this level of forgiveness can leave you disadvantaged. Do you ever speak up if someone wrongs you, or if you’re hurt? By not sharing how you feel, others won't know the impact of their actions, and you risk condoning bad behaviour – a negative cycle that will continue until you speak up. Forgiving takes strength, so be courageous as you calmly and compassionately address what is, and what isn’t, ok.
