  “Chronic anger puts you into a fight or flight mode, which results in numerous changes in heart rate, blood pressure, and immune response.”

 “No forgiveness. No transformation. Forgive. To evolve.”

 “Grudges are outgrown. The atmosphere amplifies with the connection.”

 “To forgive, study reproach. Reproach involves feedback, willingness to change, and acceptance.”

“Forgiveness is an act. The act can become your habit as you release, you rewire your feelings from resentment to compassion, anger to empathy, and sometimes even hostility to affection.”

“Reproach is a process of replacing destructive responses with constructive actions. Disrespect must be turned into respect, pride into humility, grievance into grace.”
