Thanks Iva. Yes, you’re so right. Anger affects the person holding on to it than whom it is directed to. It reminds me of the Buddhist quote: “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”
I also like your mantra of : Forgive. Heal. Release. I would add Renew to that so it becomes: Forgive. Heal. Release. Renew.
All the best!
