Global Forgiveness Day is celebrated on July 7th every year. Forgiveness day encourages us to forgive as it is an important element of personal health. According to the experts, people who forgive are less towards the certain illness and on the other side, people who don’t forgive and keep it inside suffer from a large number of health and mental problems. Withholding forgiveness can cause problems like – anxiety, high blood pressure and depression. It also leads to negative emotions and problems related to anger and frustration. 

Forgiveness isn’t an easy task, at some times it is more painful than the wounds we suffered. But most of the time, forgiveness is granted without any expectation of restorative justice. Forgiveness is a sign of a strong and powerful person.
