What is the main point Helen makes through the statement shown below?

Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs. We are, and must be, one and all, burdened with faults in this world: but the time will soon come when, I trust, we shall put them off in putting off our corruptible bodies; when debasement and sin will fall from us with this cumbrous frame of flesh, and only the spark of the spirit will remain, it makes Eternity a rest, a mighty home, not a terror and an abyss.


Let your earthly troubles go because it won't be long before we die and enter a better place.


If you can't do anything about the wrongs enacted against you, learn to let them go and move on.


Stop worrying so much; worry does not accomplish anything.


Don't waste your time remaining angry at those who wronged you; they will be dead soon enough.


Talk about your problems with others instead of keeping them to yourself.
