Did you ever get angry at someone?
Did you forgive them?
I wrote a letter to a stranger one day about this topic. And strangely enough I feel like it was dedicated towards myself.
Yesterday I had a fight with my dad. It’s all good now, I said sorry (although in my opinion it wasn’t my fault). But that’s now why I said sorry. I apologized because I made my dad feel bad. And everyone makes mistakes. And some make a lot of them. But if they’re forgieveable we should do it.
(I gave him a cookie) 😌
The thing is though sometimes we don’t see that. Our anger clouds our good and we forget about love. About the fact that a simple ‘sorry’ could make it all better. Not only now. But for the future too.
And in those times I recommend you to take space. You have no idea what space, solitary, silence and time can do.
That’s becsuse you get time to think and when you stop being angry you start thinking about yourself. And see your flaws. And how they could’ve affected the other person.
Of course it can’t always be done. But, it most definetly, in most cases, can.
So the next time, if you can’t forgive straight away, step away take time and then you will find it in yourself.
