Is forgiveness overrated?

Many people believe that forgiveness is overrated. After all, it lets the offender off the hook, right? Well, not necessarily.
Just because you forgive someone for an injustice or unkindness you suffered at their hands does not mean they don’t have to pay for what they did through karma that is completely unrelated to you. In fact, forgiveness is really more for your own benefit than for the benefit of the one who hurt you.
It releases you from hatred and negative energy, and allows you to move on.
If there is someone you need to forgive, now is the best time!
