Most difficult things to cook
My answer would be “yes” to all of the above.
While that’s true, I’m going to take it one big step further and talk about something that is much harder. Actually, it may be the most difficult thing you’ll ever do in your life.
You know exactly what this thing is too, and if you’ve ever had to do it, then you know how hard it can be.
It all comes down to one powerful, very important, and potentially life-changing word:
The Most Difficult Act of All: Forgiveness
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.” -Mahatma Gandhi
As far as I’m concerned, there is no act in the world that requires more inner strength than the act of forgiveness. Nothing at all.
Don’t believe me?
Let’s say that your significant other cheated on you and gave you an incurable STD, or your babysitter severely burned your toddler because she left him unattended while she was messing around on Facebook, or your coworker spread a vicious lie about you that was believed by your boss and it ended up getting you fired and destroying your career.
Let’s be real, would it be easy for you to show forgiveness in any of those situations? If so, you’re officially a better person than I am.
Forgiveness, in many cases, is hard as hell and it requires near super-human strength to do it well.
Even though the examples above are pretty extreme, many of us struggle with forgiving much lesser acts, don’t we?
When someone deeply hurts us (or someone we love), one of the easiest and most natural things to do is to hold on to that bitterness, anger, and hatred for as long as possible. In extreme cases, we use all of our power and strength to direct our negative energy toward the person/people who hurt us.
Believe me, I’ve been there and it’s still something that I struggle with.
In order to make the forgiveness process a little easier for all of us, let’s blow up some of the myths of what real forgiveness is all about.
Real Forgiveness: Healing Ourselves
Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” -Buddha
Simply put, forgiveness is a conscious decision to release feelings of resentment and vengeance toward the person/people who have hurt you.
Just to clear up the most common misconceptions, forgiveness is not about condoning the behavior, forgetting that it ever happened (if you forget, how could you remember the lesson?), giving the other person a “free pass” and becoming best friends again, or getting to a point where you’re fine with what happened.
The biggest misconception of all is that forgiveness is about extending kindness to the person who hurt you. Believe me, it’s not.
Forgiveness is about extending kindness to yourself by starting the healing process.
As a person who has had to practice forgiveness in my life more often than I would like to admit, I realized that when I was consumed by those deep feelings of hatred and vengeance, it was like I was being victimized twice.

It is very important to be nice to people, even when it is the most difficult thing in the world to do. I struggle with this every day, but also pray nightly that tomorrow will be easier.
