Inspirational forgiveness quotes

Why should you forgive someone? Especially if that person has said or done something that perhaps hurt or upset you. The Cambridge dictionary gives the following meaning for ‘Forgiveness’: To stop blaming or being angry with someone for something that person has done, or not punish them for something.

When you forgive someone, it begins the healing process and helps you to move on with your life. Forgiving someone also removes anger from your health. By forgiving someone it also makes you the bigger person.

I believe that forgiving someone is not just something that you do for them, it is also something that you do for you! Forgiveness is really important for a healthy life and healthy relationships.

I hope that the forgiveness quotes below resonate with you and that they will inspire you to forgive someone who has perhaps hurt you. Life is too short to be mad and angry at people when you should spend more energy on making yourself happy.
