Kristeena GavilanesEnglish II, Period 4Mrs. V. Owens10/16/13Forgiving is the Key to HappinessForgiving, a simple word to talk about but a hard word to live up to. Why? What makes it so hard for someone to just forgive and move on?Forgiving a person can make the heart feel a thousand times lighter, and also helps one move on from stuff a little bit faster. Not forgiving someone for something they have done makes people think about it more than they actually should. It will just revolve around the head all day and it cannot just seem to leave the mind. In the Pearl, Kino hit Juana. Of course Juana is going to be upset at first, it is natural, but later she realized that there is no point of just keeping it in her heart so she just forgave him and moved on from it.To forgive someone for the wrong they have committed makes the other the bigger and more mature one in the situation. When Juana forgave Kino, they went back to their old loving days. She was wise enough to know that holding a grudge against him would get her nowhere so she let it go. She moved on from the situation and forgot about it.Forgiving someone for something does not just help the problem but helps someone have a good impression of themselves. People will always know that, that person is soft hearted and do not seek any trouble so they just would not do anything in the first place. It will simply tell them that they are smart enough to not have any enemies and just do not care about all that unnecessary stuff and people will always know them for being the good man, the good person in any bad situation.Just a few months ago I was told that I was told by my grandmother that I was a disgrace, that I needed psychological help and needed to go to church because I'm a lesbian. So of course for a while we did not talk, not even a look in one another's direction. But eventually we both came to our senses and I forgave her and she avoided the situation. I am disowned, so she says, no at the end of the day we are both well aware of who I am and she knows she needs to learn to accept it and I will never throw it in her face. Having this happened made me more aware that some people won't be as accepting as others, this is real life what my grandma and I are going through. But, we're getting through it and I do love her.So to put it all together, forgiving is a great thing! You are happier, wiser, and you don't have any stress to worry about.
