A segment on the D.L. Hughley Show inspired me to write today’s blog about forgiving. And for those of you who are having trouble absolving your fellow man, check out the following ten reasons to do it anyway:

9. It helps you to be in the present, enjoying the now.

7. It lowers symptoms of depression.

6. It helps you stop punishing yourself.

5. It helps your regain your power.

4. It improves your health.

3. It decreases hostility.

2. It improves relationships with others.

1. It allows you to get your happiness back.
