Learning to Forgive - By Kimberly Swanson, MS - Psychology, CNA

Sometimes people have hurt you in your life and it can leave an open wound.  It may not be a physical wound but a mental and spiritual wound.  Holding on to past hurt can cause the wound to continue to fester and linger.  Or even worse, the wound can spread and get bigger when you continue to allow the same type of abuse or by inflicting more harm to yourself than good.

Often time these mental wounds stems from past pain because we have not yet learned how to forgive and let go.  These hurts can come from  intimate relationships (e.g. husband, wife, boyfriend & girlfriend) or family (e.g.  mother, father, brother, sister, etc.), or friends and neighbors.  Holding on to grudges is not healthy.  Take the time to reflect, clear out, and meditate, and move forward. Forgiving is a process.  Knowing that these feelings are there and having the will power to change your thought patterns is the key to healing and moving forward.
