Everyone gets burned in life in one way or another, it’s impossible to avoid. Seeing past the burn and the pain is the best way to protect yourself from scars. Even then there’s no excuse to not pray for them and yourself to push past it.
Resentment is a poison we drink when we’re unable to forgive and move forward; which sadly leads to a slow and lonely death. I don’t know about you but I’m not going to drink poison for anyone.
I forgive because it’s easier to live that way.
Forgiveness doesn’t mean you forget everything, it’s the opposite. You never forget it but you use the pain to power you up and away from the person who hurt you while teaching you that cruelty exists but you don’t have to bring it into your slice of the world. There’s too much love and kindness to let hate and bitterness reign.
Forgiveness is the best form of love. It takes a strong person to apologize and an even stronger person to forgive. Don’t let hurt feelings turn you into someone you’re not.
