Peace has not the product of a victory or a command, it has no finishing lime no final deadline, no fixed definition of achievement. Peace is a never-ending process, it is the work of many decisions…….unknown
There is really no need to die in silence when you can easily share your story with Ziga and you can say sorry through our platform for we understand how difficult it can be for someone like you to say sorry, is really not as easy as one may think, sometimes to open up and say sorry not knowing how the offended party might react or even what might happen to your ego after saying the sorry becomes a problem. You can easily type your apology message on our comment box below, the holy book urges us to forgive one another and the laws of the universe backs it up through karma, when you hurt someone you will be hurt by another but when there is reconciliation the pains of revenge shall be eliminated.
On the other hand it pays to forgive as Martin Luther the king Jr. once said that “forgiveness is not an occasional act but it is a permanent attitude”.
“Forgiveness is choosing to love, it is the first skill of self-giving love”… Mahandas K. Gandhi.
A weak person can never forgive because forgiveness is an attribute of the strong and I believe that you reading this post is strong, even if you’re not, you will like to be. So pick up your phone and take the bold step of making peace with yourself, your fellow and the universe. When you are truly sorry take that bold step and say it out, you will be free and when you are strong enough to forgive you will be free as well. Do you know that enmity is like a double edged sword because it eats up the offender and also eats up the offended?
On our twitter inbox Emeka from Uyo Nigeria sent a message which reads “I offended my mum by not loving her the way I should have, right now she is no more, can I still apologize to her and how possible is it? Will I be forgiven?”
Ziga’s response: having summon the courage to pour your heart Emeka I believe the universe have heard you and you will be forgiven, whenever you visit home, walk to your mother’s grave, pour out your heart the way you would have done if she was to appear before you, say all you have in your heart, you can say it in form of prayers to the creator of the universe. You can choose to plant a flower on her grave, then you go and hurt yourself no more.
Please if your mother is still alive, show her all the love that she needs. Kindly use the comment box below and give your own personal contribution and advice to Emeka.
