When are you really just hurting yourself?

When someone says or does something that hurts you, do you forgive them? Sometimes it's easy, but sometimes it's really hard. What if they never say they are sorry or ask you to forgive them? You might think, "If they don't apologize, then I don't need to forgive them." Wrong. You do need to forgive them! Why? When you don't forgive another person, you are really just hurting yourself.

Think about what it means to forgive. When you forgive someone, you are not saying, "It's OK that you hurt me." No. What they did or said was still wrong. When you forgive, you choose to let go of your hurt and anger. You decide to stop remembering what hurt you. You may have to forgive the person again and again. It may be hard, but it will be good for you.

Studies show that people who don't forgive often have health problems. Holding on to bad feelings can actually hurt your body. Here are some of the problems:

● High blood pressure
● D epression
● Pain that doesn't go away
● Alcoholand drug abuse
● H eart disease

People who don't forgive can also have problems with relationships. They bring their bad feelings into other relationships. Making or keeping friends can become very hard.

So don't wait any longer. Forgive today! You'll be glad you did.

宽恕他人的重要性

找找看

哪些时候你只会伤害到自己?

有人说某句话或做某件事伤害到你时,你会原谅他们吗? 有时原谅很容易,但有时却很困难。如果他们从未说抱歉,也没有请你原谅时,你该怎么办? 你可能会认为:「如果他们不道歉,我就不需要原谅他们。」但这是错误的。 你确实需要原谅他们! 为什么呢? 因为你不原谅某人时,其实只有伤害到自己。

想想原谅他人是什么意思。 你原谅某人时,意思并不是「你伤害我是没关系的。」 不是, 他们做的事或说的话仍然是错误的。但当你原谅时,你是对自己的伤害和怒气选择放手。 你决定不要再记得伤害你的人事物。有时候,你得一次又一次地原谅那个人。或许这并不容易,对你却很有益处。

研究显示,不肯原谅别人的人,通常会有健康的问题。紧抓不好的感受而不放手,往往最后会伤害到你的身体。这些问题包括:

● 高血压
● 忧郁症
● 持续的疼痛
● 酒精和药物滥用
● 心脏疾病

不肯原谅别人的人,也可能在人际关系方面产生问题。他们把不好的感受带到其他朋友的关系当中, 结果使他们在交新朋友或维持友谊方面,都产生困难。

所不要再等待了。今天就原谅那个人吧! 将来你会很高兴你作了这个明智的决定。
