When you are hurt by someone or cheated or when someone offends you, it is natural to feel angry, sad, vengeful, painful and dejected. Yet it happens, however helpful or good you are to others. In such circumstances, you can hold on to the grudge or forgive them by accepting their apologies.
You may have seen people say they can never forgive or forget a bad incident or behavior towards them. Psychologists point out that the inabililty to forgive is a sign of a poor emotional intelligence.
Even very intelligent and gifted people fail to grow in their careers due to their inability to forgive and forget bad things that have occurred in their lives. It can also have an adverse impact on their marriage and family relationships.
