Moving on From Hurt

Dr. James Dennison tells the following story about forgiveness.

A young boy was ridiculed by some kids at school, and came home humiliated. His grandfather happened to be visiting; he could tell that the boy was upset, and asked why.

The boy told him the story, then said, "It feels like I have two wolves fighting in my heart. One is angry and wants revenge. The other wants to forgive them. Which one will win?"

His wise grandfather replied, "The one you feed."

We've all been hurt. We've all been wounded. So the question is which one will you feed?

There is only one way to move forward toward health. The only person you hurt by holding on to the anger is yourself.

Move on my friends. Get healthy.

Nice post.

Getting angry at someone is like drinking poison and hopping the other person dies. Heard this somewhere.

God bless,
