Abandon the idea that you will forever be the victim of the things that have happened to you. Choose to be a victor.

Forgiving someone doesn’t mean condoning their behavior. It doesn’t mean forgetting how they hurt you or giving that person room to hurt you again. Forgiving someone means making peace with what happened. It means acknowledging your wound, giving yourself permission to feel the pain, and recognizing why that pain no longer serves you. It means letting go of the hurt and resentment so that you can heal and move on.

Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you are.

It is wise to direct your anger toward problems; not people. To focus your energies on answers; not excuses.

The more you hide your feelings, the more they show. The more you deny your feelings, the more they grow.

The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present.

Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.

Don’t promise when you are happy, don’t reply when you are angry, and don’t decide when you are sad.

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

Don’t wait for your feelings to change to take the action. Take the action and your feelings will change.

Forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.

Genuine forgiveness does not deny anger but faces it head-on.

Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.

Speak when you are angry and you’ll make the best speech you’ll ever regret.

Feelings are real and legitimate.

Anger always comes from frustrated expectations.

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to a better understanding of ourselves.

If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace.

The most important thing in this world is to learn to give out love and let it come in.
