Day 5–Forgiveness, Part Two

May 30, 2009

There is no doubt that once, in the span of your life, you have made a mistake. Mistakes are inevitable, for the  most part, but they can still cause others pain. Most of the time, it is not the mistake itself that causes ill will, but the resentment associated. And, while the tangible effects of a mistake fade, the resentment may yet remain.

Hopefully, you have forgiven someone for a mistake they perpetrated against you. Today, your task is a bit harder. Today, ask someone who you have hurt in some way for forgiveness. Perhaps, if resentment remains, they will not respond, but a first step towards rectification must be taken. Today, I’m counting on you to take it.

Don’t be nervous. Everyone has, at some point, needed forgiveness. Today you take the first step in achieving yours.

I’ll see you tomorrow.
