It's not easy to overlook insults and stifle harsh retorts when
challenged or when we feel that our self-worth has been denigrated.
However, doing so will enhance the quality of humility
that is so vital to our spiritual growth. It is not only the one
who harms you who benefits when you respond by forgiving
him or her; in fact, you are the prime beneficiary of your actions.
Responding with anger or retaliation damages your soul and
disturbs the harmony that Hashem wants us to maintain among
Harboring resentment is a two-edged sword that cuts you as
deeply as it cuts your adversary. Since it is a less-than-useless exercise
that will have only a negative effect, it is mandatory that you
relieve yourself of resentment and instead work on eliminating
it. Encourage yourself to look at both sides of the story before
jumping to conclusions. It is easy to reach a false conclusion as
to someone's motives and intentions, and we often become angry
and resentful when we misinterpret the actions of others.
When we are able to forgive those who injure us, when we can
relieve ourselves of the baggage of resentment and blame, when we can change our mood so that we can greet the world with
a pleasant face, then we will have learned to emulate the masters
of middos (character) and attained humility. We will be able to request of
the Divine, "Forgive me as I forgive others."
