Release negativity. Release frustrations. Release hurt and anger. Release sadness. Let go off the pointless drama and the people who create it, as i read some where. Forgive and move on. We are on a journey. Every person we meet teaches us a lesson and makes us stronger and better. Question whether reacting on one teeny bad thing can upset you for aeons as a consequence. Be wiser. Forget the bad and focus only on the good. Don’t wish bad for anyone. Don’t wish that they get stuck in a deep dark place. What kind of person would that make you? Someone similar wouldn’t it? So, all i am saying is- Don’t let negative emotions steal your right to smile. After all life is too short to be anything be happy. :) Don’t let negative emotions cage your soul. Fly away little birdie. Fly. :) *YaY*
It is very easy to hurt someone and say sorry. It is even easier to justify your actions. It is infact easier to do things behind people’s back even with the knowledge that once they find out they will be crushed. Easy to have the audacity to justify the BIG mistakes that you have done and blame it on another. Easy to pick on something very little and make it very big when it comes to another person without looking at your own short comings.
The bigger, better person always forgives but does he/she forget and does he/she stop hurting? Serious questions which none of us want to answer.
Life is easier to live and your conscience will be clear once you understand this verse by Bulleh Shah:
Masjid dha de, mandir dha de, dha de jo kucch dainda ,
par kisi da dil na dhanwein, Rab dilan vich rehnda..
( Tear down the Mosque, tear down the temple, tear down every thing in sight,
But don’t (tear down) break anyone’s heart.. because in the heart God resides.. )
Once you understand this verse, you would know that hurting or breaking the heart of even your worst enemy is a sin in itself.

I think everyone deserves a second chance. Forgiveness is an exquisite trait. Not many people have it, some prefer sweet revenge. But then if a person has had bad experiences with the same person again and again, then as they say- once bitten, twice shy. There is no right answer. The answer differs from person to person.
Sometimes, second Chances should not be given, especially if they are third, fourth, fifth and sixth ‘second’ chances and especially if people don’t deserve them and portray it as a huge favour to your existence that you gave them a second chance.
But some second chances should be given, especially after you put yourself in another person’s shoes. What if you were the one who truly regretted your actions? What if you repented and resolved never to repeat the same mistake. What if you wanted to be forgiven, start afresh and try again? So, maybe, just maybe people do deserve a second chance.
If you do decide to give somebody a second chance then do so whole heartedly. But even the person who gets the gift of a second chance, needs to accept it with responsibility, because if you blow this second chance and take it for granted, maybe this time there would be no room for mending or repair.
