One of the hardest things in life is to forgive. It's hard to forgive others of the offenses they have done against you. Some offenses are easier to forgive than others but what helps is giving it all to God and allowing him to help you work through your anger, hurt and pain.
But I have since learned of an even harder thing to forgive and that is your own self. When you are the offender and you realize the pain you have caused its even harder to forgive ourself. Sometimes its said that we are own worst enemy. We need again to give all pains and hurts to God and ask him to help you walk this out.
Right now I am learning to control my tongue and control my anger, two really hard things to do. This weekend I blew it. I did everything I told myself not to do. Now, the frustration lies in me, I'm not victim but the one who has caused the undo pain. But I know my God is my forgiver and he is teaching me a lesson in life to walk away from criticism and learn to accept accusations because you know the truth and arguing gets you know were but causes strife and distance between you and others.
I can only say, I'm sorry and hopefully learn my lesson to stop talking and accept what is being said without arguement. Thank you God for your forgiveness without him I could not forgive others or even forgive myself.
