The benefits of forgiving

“Forgiving people are less likely to be hateful, depressed, hostile, anxious, angry and neurotic. They are more likely to be happier, healthier, more agreeable and more serene. They are better able to empathize with others and to be spiritual or religious… Forgiving allows a person to move on” (Lyubomirsky, p. 176).
