The willingness to forgive is an important ingredient in a successful peaceful, happy, positive relationships. The ability to forgive will be a useful tool in your relationship if it use in a timely and effective way.

I think the first way to start is learning to first forgive yourself for your own imperfections. Then understanding that your mate is imperfect also.

Now forgiveness is not about letting the other person get off the hook for their mistakes. Its primary function and value is to let you off the hook from damaging consequences of carrying around suppressed negative feelings.

Just consider all the benefits of forgiveness and what it can do for your life. It will release you from negative feelings, allow you to be free and move forward in your relationship.

Forgiveness is not an easy thing to do especially when someone that you love cause you pain BUT if you learn and practice forgiveness then you gaining power of your life and not allowing another person action dictate yours.

I'm not sure how many I will reach with this topic but if anybody who read this post and is holding on to negative feelings..let it go! and learn to forgive.
