Would you deliberately choose bitterness over happiness? Of course not! Yet so often, indirectly and unknowingly, that is exactly the choice that you make. A choice that can keep you trapped with no hope of escape. Forgiveness is the most powerful tool to relieve suffering! In fact, you are able to change all of those old patterns of beliefs and actions that are driven by bitterness. As you let go of grudges, you will no longer define your life by how you have been hurt, and you may even find depths of compassion and understanding that you never knew you had.
