When you willingly let go of old resentments, you open yourself up to love. Though the desire to come out on top or win in interpersonal conflicts can be strong, the pleasure of simply being loved can eclipse the satisfaction of needing to be right. The hurt you hold on to can color love. Letting hurt go, however, helps you build loving relationships and frees you from lingering tension or negative expectations. Love unmarred by resentment lends itself to forgiveness, acceptance, and peace. Letting go of old hurt can remove a great weight from you, allowing your relationships to blossom and grow. By forgiving and letting go of past hurt today, your relationships can experience a fresh start, free from unresolved issues.
