21+ Reasons Why Forgiveness Is Important
Hello friends, welcome to SahilSharmaBlogs where you get all the information related to the problems in your life.
Today we are going to discuss about the benefits of forgiveness in our lives and the reasons why forgiveness is important for ourselves. Forgiving people is a divine quality but practically it is difficult to forgive anyone. And when someone cheats on us, then it becomes a horrifying problem for us.
We need several things to live a beautiful life; even materialistic things play an important role in running our life smoothly. Similarly, emotions of the mind are the most important elements for living a happy life. We have to maintain a proper balance between the eternal and materialistic illusions to clear the vision of beautiful life.
If this balance gets disturbs, we suffer in life. In many of our articles, I have discussed that materialistic achievements do not make us happy, but still, we have to maintain the balance between them. Materialistic achievements play a vital role in the proper maintaining of bodily activities.
Mind is the master of our life, and if we want to become the master of our life, we have to become the master of our mind. Otherwise, we will become slaves to it, and this stage is very dangerous. This will ruin our entire lifestyle and peace of mind.
It has control over our emotions, feelings, and life decisions. And it is a very complex creation of nature. It is very difficult to control our mind, but with regular practice, we can control it. To control your mind you have to follow strict rules with consistency and determination.
Why we forgive others is an important concept that everyone should understand. Until you know the positive and negative effects of forgiveness, you will feel skeptical of forgiving others. But when your mind is clear with all doubts you will forgive them.
Forgiveness brings more positivity in your life, this is the most beneficial point of forgiveness and when you do not forgive, it will dwell more and more negativity in your mind, the worst negative point about forgiveness.
Anger is the reason why we find it difficult to forgive others; we feel angry because of our impatience and intolerant behaviour. When our senses do not get their sense objects, it creates anger in our mind and it gives rise to greed and many bad habits in us.
If we do not control our anger, it will ruin our relationship with our friends and surroundings. When we get angry, we lose our temper and forget all the positivity about the other person. Wrath destroys our beautiful relationships with people due to a temporary impression.
Wrath and forgiveness are opposite to each other. And a person, who needs peace in his life, must choose forgiveness. He knows the importance of forgiveness and implements it in his life, to enjoy its eternal results. Our mind thinks more and more about the pain until we try to forget it by ourselves. The pain will get intensified by our memory of that hurt repeatedly.
Forgiveness is important in life for many reasons. Forgiveness teaches us the real meaning of life, which means that attachment to people and surroundings can bring misery in the future. Attachments is the path to a dissatisfied and envious life.
Attachment gives us the temporary and fake enjoyment. Our illusion makes us indulge in fake enjoyments. Such thirst for indulgence will never be satisfied because it comes due to our unstable senses. Senses always revolve around their sense objects to gratify them, but when we control our senses, we become distasteful towards those sensory objects. This will only happen when we raise the level of our consciousness.
We are always entangled in the duality of this materialistic life until our mind becomes clear about the eternal truth of life. These dualities are not permanent, they change as weather changes. To tolerate such appearances and disappearances of the materialistic illusion, we have to acquire the quality of detachment.
Detachment is the process leading to liberation; it helps in controlling our senses and cleanse our hearts with negative emotions and feelings. Detachment helps in abstaining senses from their sense objects. It will maintain the balance between material and eternal happiness.
Dr. Robert Enright from the University of Wisconsin–Madison founded the International Forgiveness Institute and is considered the initiator of forgiveness studies. He developed a 20-Step Process Model of Forgiveness. Recent work has focused on what kind of person is more likely to be forgiving.
A longitudinal study showed that people who were generally more neurotic, angry, and hostile in life were less likely to forgive another person even after a long time had passed. Specifically, these people were more likely to still avoid their transgressor and want to enact revenge upon them two and a half years after the transgression.
To restrain the materialistic illusion to drive you away from your supreme goal, you must acquire the divine qualities prescribed by God in their holy scriptures. The qualities of forgiveness, honesty, truthfulness, cleanliness are the godly qualities, which help us is living a happy and peaceful life.
Forgiveness is an essential component for maintaining a healthy relationship with people. Forgiveness helps in maintaining the level of empathy, love, hatred and jealousy in our heart.
Everyone is unique on this planet. And their way of thinking also differs, but we have to live together on this earth. We have to learn to compromise with some situations. Becoming the winner every time is not the purpose of life.
Losing a battle for a better cause is also a sign of greatness. When there is love and compassion for people in our hearts, we will not feel sad losing some time. And eventually, when the feeling of love and compassion gets deluded by the materialistic illusion, it gets converted into lust and anger. Lust is never going to be satisfied, and it is in our hands to control our mind in the search of lust.

Perhaps if you were in such a situation, you will also do what they did to you. Try to understand their intention behind hurting you. If there is no bad intention to hurt you, you should definitely forgive them. Keeping hatred in such circumstances is like doing a mistake.

Humility is also one of the divine qualities that God has prescribed for his devotees. When we feel humility in our hearts, we will never try to hurt anyone.
