Forgiveness day is a day to forgive and be forgiven, Forgiveness Day is a chance to set things right. To Forgive, one has to put aside old differences, move beyond grievances and hurts and start afresh. Forgiveness be definition is the process of ceasing to feel resentment, indignation or anger against another person for a perceived offense, difference or mistake, or ceasing to demand punishment or restitution. And to be forgiven, one has to make the initiative to ask for apology. An apology is an act of expressing regret or asking pardon for a fault.
There is already a International Forgiveness Day in August, founded by the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance, but the Global Forgiveness Day on 7th July was founded by CECA (Christian Embassy of Christ’s Ambassadors), though really both days have essentially the same message; to forgive!
In honor of countless benefits of forgiveness, people all over the world united to celebrate Global Forgiveness Day annually on 7th of July. Almost everyone has been hurt by the actions or words of others. Unintentionally or not, they can make you feel angry, resent, bitter or indignant. Sometimes you will hold on to thoughts of revenge. However, decide to let go of those feelings is always the better way. It doesn’t mean that you ignore the person’s responsibility for hurting you but remit them without excuses. It’s when you embrace forgiveness and move forward. Forgiveness not only makes you happier and healthier but also higher self-esteem.
