Don’t Carry Your Resentments and Disappointments Around with You

Hey, it’s Amy Newmark with your Chicken Soup for the Soul. Today we’re talking about forgiveness, which I believe is essential to being happy. If you’re carrying around resentment and disappointment and anger because of things that have happened to you, you’re carrying quite a heavy burden. And the person you’re hurting is you, not the person or people who hurt you. It might sound impossible, but you really can use the power of forgiveness to free yourself. And it’s something you can accomplish instantly, just by deciding that you’re going to stop.
