Speaker 1: Time now for another Wellness Minute with Dr. Erica Steele from Holistic Family Practice.
Speaker 2: Goodness is a conscious choice that we make to let go of bitterness, anger, and resentment towards ourselves as well as other people. A lack of forgiveness in self and holding onto all of that. Bitterness and resentment actually is one of the causes of autoimmune conditions as you begin to learn to pick yourself apart, literally as well as figurative.
We wanna really learn how to forgive ourselves because we’re all fallible. At the end of the day, we all make mistakes, and so the more that we’re able to acknowledge the mistake and then fully accept ourselves exactly as we are, the more that we’re able to forgive and accept other people, it’s a hundred percent healthy.
For us all to make mistakes and owning up to our mistakes is really important for us to be able to accept not only personal responsibility. But to release out negativity such as anger, resentment, and hostility, which can really impact and burden the liver as well as the digestive system. It’s really important that we use tools like journaling to accept our forgiveness and our flaws, as well as talking to friends and family, and even seeking a healthcare professional can really help you to learn how to practice forgiveness on a daily basis
