Diary 244: Forgiveness brings peace of mind
Mr X came to my office one morning to borrow some money about 8 years ago.
I gave him the money on condition that he was to return the it by monthly installment. He agreed.
Since then, he did not come to my office any more.
In fact, he avoided meeting me in the workplace.
It must have been a torture by avoiding people like me.
In the morning of 3 December 2010, I approached him during our monthly staff gathering.
“Kes anda dengan saya telah selesai dan dihalalkan. Tak perlu elakkan saya lagi.”, I sincerely told him.
“Betul?”, he asked.
He smiled happily.
I learn this in life. When we loan out some money, we have to prepare that borrower will not return it. Just treat it as a donation.
Forgiveness brings peace of mind and good health to both parties.
