"God gives some more than others because some accept more than others."
"Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it."
- Ernest Holmes, Holmes was the founder of a movement known as Religious Science, also known as "Science of Mind", a part of the New Thought movement
"Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger."
- Christian D. Larsen, Larsen was a New Thought leader and teacher, as well as a prolific author of metaphysical and New Thought books.

Fear, anger and resentment reside within you. When you feel anger towards someone, you are giving them permission to alter your mood and giving them power over your emotional state.
When you cannot forgive someone, you are giving them permission to continue to influence your life in a way that doesn't serve your happiness.
You may not want to forgive someone because you think that they do not "deserve it". But, in reality, forgiveness has nothing to do with letting them "off the hook".
Forgiveness frees you from the chains of the past and lets you move on.
Continuing to stay angry at someone continues to create anger in you, which affects your moods, your physiology and your quality of life.
When you are angry, it is healthy to recognize and express it. But to dwell in it only keeps you down.
To dwell for longer than you need to in unforgiveness actually stunts your ability to be happy and manifest a life of your Highest Potential.
Do you want to continue to let people you are angry at influence your life in a negative way? Do you really want "revenge"? Do you really want to be happy?
Then express your anger, and then let it go. Forgive yourself today. Forgive them. Not for their sake, but for yours.
Free yourself from the chains of the past, let go of the unnecessary anger that keeps you down. Make room in yourself only for love, only for compassion and you will find yourself lifted.
Let go of anger, forgive and welcome love into your life. This is the promise of forgiveness. This is the promise of love.
I forgive and get on to living!
I express my anger consciously.
I move on with life.
