FORGIVE BY MEG OKAO
15th May, 2020
I always tell myself that when you live your life without anyone hurting, disappointing, disgracing or offending you, then it means you never did anything worthy.
The beauty of life is that it comes with disappointments and offences from people you least expect.
Unfortunately, some of us spend so much time on the disappointments and offences and end up becoming victims of all circumstances.
Remember this one thing always: Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.
The fact is that the world is full of annoying, naughty and ungrateful people; you will always come across them during the gentle stroll of your life span, but the best thing to do is to deal with them with love and maturity. You can’t get everyone to behave like you. Never!!!
Hatred and intolerance have caused many of the world’s problems and have solved none of them. We must learn to tolerate and forgive one another. We must bury the faults of others and move on with life.
As you read this piece, I beseech you to take the pain and forgive that special person you have grudges with and iron out your grievances. Muster the courage and apologise to that person you have offended. The clock is ticking, man is ageing, grave is calling and we are not in charge. Life is short, you don’t know how much time you have left…
*Please live the life of tolerate and accommodate others!
