Sometimes you’ll enter in some kind of relationships with people talking bad about you. If you’re a popular guy and receive a lot of media attention you’ll soon have your own “clients”. They will just talk bad about you as their day to day job. This is what they’re hired to do, in fact. You don’t have any other alternative than to forgive them.

Forgiveness is not easy. Especially when the inflicted hurting is occurring frequently and steadily. But it is rewarding. Forgiving means understanding that the other is in pain too and is struggling to find an easier path. On the process, he’s stepping on your neck. But he’s just a human being, like you. Hard to believe it sometimes, but true.

One of the things I learned during my choice of a personal path was that everything that comes into our life is a reflection of what we are. Everything around you is attracted by you, it is not coming into your life out of the blue. There is no hazard, there are only our wishes and the reflection of them into our lives. Forgiving is the process in which you accept and transform the negative parts in yourself too.

All in all, negative opinions are a reality that you should face. Better do it with honesty and hope. Sometimes those opinions will be just plain lies, sometimes they will be road signs that are making you great service. But they are there in your life for a reason. You might have to learn a lot of things during this wonderful travel, and those negative opinions may be in fact just your disguised teachers. You’ll have to learn how to forgive, how to master your emotional response, how to direct your focus or how to forgive others and yourself.

Not everybody will like you. And you know what? That’s ok.

      Thank you Seb. Forgiveness can help you reconcile. First, it’s important to understand that you can forgive someone without resuming contact or picking a relationship back up. You can forgive someone even if you know you can never have the same relationship. Depending on the circumstances, you may even need to avoid contact.

      Forgiveness can even lead to feelings of understanding, empathy and compassion for the one who hurt you. Forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting or excusing the harm done to you or making up with the person who caused the harm. Forgiveness brings a kind of peace that helps you go on with life.

      Ah great quote. When Mahatma Gandhi said, “The weak can never forgive; forgiveness is the attribute of the strong,” he meant it with his heart and soul but we talk of forgiveness only in vague terms. We don’t really want to forget, forgive and move on.
