If you want to be happy, you must forgive others – and so I created this collection of forgiveness quotes to help you move on and find inner peace.
I hope these forgiveness quotes inspire you to truly let go and move on from hurt, anger and regret.
Admittedly it’s not easy to forgive someone for what they did – or even said.
But forgiving others is actually something you must do for yourself – in order to be free of resentment.
If You Want to Forgive, Remember…
- Thoughts of anger and hate simply take up emotional and mental space that you’d be better off using on people, habits and ideas which bring you joy, love and inner peace.
What I Tell Myself When I Want To Forgive
- Life has many chapters in it.
- Whatever happened is simply one chapter.
- Turn the page.
- Get curious about what will happen next.
- Focus on making sure the next chapters are your best chapters yet!
