Forgiving and Being Forgiven

Forgiveness is a virtue. Not everyone on earth can forgive others for their mistake and not everyone can ask for forgiveness for their mistake. I was thinking about my mistakes that I have committed so far and was wondering whether will I be forgiven or not if I ask to forgive me for my mistakes.

It is very natural to make mistakes in life. If one does not commit any mistakes it just means he has not done anything in life. I am one of the people who learn only from my mistakes no matter what. Until unless I feel that I have made a mistake I won’t agree with anyone that it is my mistake but if I feel that it is my mistake I ensure that I don’t repeat it next time. After all it is boring to make the same mistakes again and again. I don’t make mistakes that often, but blunders. I live life like that only. I don’t like small things in life, for me everything has to be big even mistakes i.e. blunder.

I have tried to forgive people who have made mistakes or hurt me. Honestly speaking I have failed most of the time. It is very difficult to forgive others for their mistake even if they realize and apologize to you and ask for forgiveness. I don’t know how far I will be successful in forgiving others (I am trying hard). I feel it’s divine to forgive others; if you forgive others for their mistakes then I am sure you can call yourselves GOD. I mean it. These days it is hard to find people who have larger heart who can forgive others for their grave mistakes. I wish to be one of them who forgive others but …

Forgiving others for their mistakes actually helps you and makes you great in the other person’s eye if he genuinely asks for forgiveness. He will surely treat you with great respect from then on. I think one of the greatest qualities of Messenger of God or GOD himself is forgiveness because I have realized that it is a very big thing to forgive others. We all crib about others for the mistakes that they have committed, shower them with curses if we are hurt, and ensure that they are hurt from our actions. This is a normal human being. I am just like this. I want to change and have made progress in this region. I try to forgive others for their mistakes and even those who hurt me very badly. I have realized that if I have grudge against them it is no harm for them but for me, I will be thinking about them day and night and will be sad with what I am going through instead if I forgive them for their mistakes (whether they ask for forgiveness or not) I will be happy about myself and if the other person is genuine even he will be happy after realizing that I have forgiven him. I think this is a good way to lead life instead of having hatred feelings towards them and by loving them.

Mistakes happen in life and we can never be perfect. We can always try to become perfect but that is something that can’t be done over night. Everything that we do can be done in a better way. Being human is very difficult in the present situation but I want to be a human. I have seen people cursing on roads if they come in the way of our driving.

Learn from your mistakes, ask for forgiveness and forgive others for their mistakes even if they don’t ask for forgiveness. Enjoy life, after all we have just one life and let’s lead it happily.

Forgive and you will be forgiven…
