Why Forgive? Podcast 01 – 2021

Advertisements

Hi Friends,

I am trying to get back into podcasting again. I am a bit out of practice, so this podcast is a bit rough around the edges and a bit of a ramble.

It is uploaded onto sound-cloud, but you should be able to listen to it on your browser. These are my thoughts based on my experiences and my own efforts to deal with difficult situations in my life.

Quotes used in the podcast:

As I walked out the door towards the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind I’d still be in Prison.    –Nelson Mandela.

No one has the right to do wrong, not even if a wrong has been done to them.  – Victor E Frankl

When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.  – Victor E Frankl

I don’t think of all the misery, but of all the beauty that still remains.  – Anne Frank

  1. Nice, Bella. Very important concepts you are covering here. I like how you talk about that internal negativity as an invisible string that attaches us to the other person, or event, that we are focused on, when we don’t forgive and let go. I like the new podcasts. Well done, my friend. Have a great week.

    • Yes you are right about self forgiveness. I forgot to talk about that in terms of letting go , forgive ourself for talking pain and holding onto pain. Thank you so much. It means a lot that you like it. Gives me encouragement to do more.

  2. Hey, sorry I didn’t comment sooner on the podcast. I listened to the whole thing and I think you give a very realistic analysis of forgiveness. It is true, we make ourselves sick in many ways but holding on to the pain. In my own life, I experienced something that I just wanted God to make the person disappear entirely, but over the years I see that I needed to forgive in order for me to heal. Although many people don’t know or realize that they hurt you and refusing to forgive them won’t do anything, I think some people genuinely are ignorant of what they’ve done wrong, and others do realize and wish it were otherwise. I hope that someday I can have forgiveness from people I hurt in the past and even from those I am not aware I hurt, in the same way I try to forgive those who also unknowingly hurt me. I’m in no position to elevate my own behavior, that’s for sure, and I guess it must keep me humble. But goodness knows there are those types who never give it a second thought whom they hurt. That’s when we only poison ourselves refusing to let go. If all else fails, I suppose forgetting it all is the next best thing.

    • Thank you for deep analysis of the podcast. Life is a big learning curve. Forgiving and forget6 is hard especially for those who are just consistently awful, but we must otherwise my constant thinking of them and hurt creates an invisible bond between us and a negative karmic account that we keep getting back to us. To be able enjoy our life we have to let go.

      Thank you for you deep thought and churning.
