The Role Forgiveness Plays in a Dentist's Life

The Role Forgiveness Plays in a Dentist's Life

Our human nature - our ego - is confusing.  You feel the emotions of anger, resentment, extreme emotions.  It’s difficult to see or feel “past” those strong emotions.  

Yet, those emotions are imprisoning you. 

“When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.” ~ Catherine Ponder

The next time you feel an extreme negative emotion toward someone, begin to think of forgiveness.  Forgiveness in that there is “no more debt.”  Forgiveness in that you move on, in freedom from those emotions. 

Forgiveness does not have to say that the other person did nothing wrong.  Forgiveness has to say that you are free, that there is no further debt holding the two of you together.

Forgiveness. 

Freedom.

Hold it gently, mull it over and move into the light.
