The Healing Power of Forgiveness

One of the greatest secrets to happiness in the world today is learning to forgive. There is a burden and a weight that is lifted when we choose to forgive or let go of grudges we may be holding. It is important to note that Elder Uchtdorf tells us to not only forgive others, but also to forgive ourselves. At times we may feel that what we have done is past repair or that God certainly won't welcome us back because of what we've done. These thoughts and feelings are destructive and not of God. As we learn to forgive, to learn, and to move on we will find the purifying and healing effects of the Atonement operating in our lives.
