    Because I Can't And I Don't Wanna Be Angry :)

    There is no use for being mad at someone the whole life. With forgiveness you can feel so much better. We can all made mistakes. And we can all forgive for those who hurt us if we wont. But we have one life and It'll be better if we could forget bad things and remember only the...

    Time Heals

    It has taken me some time to forgive, but I see no point in not. For years I noticed that I was hurting myself by not forgiving. I can't say that it has brought me complete inner peace but I'm slowly getting there.

    Forgiveness

    Forgiveness is not ignoring, disregarding, tolerating, excusing, overlooking, or closing one's eyes to the sin of another person. It is not simply letting time pass after the offense has been committed and then "getting over it." It is not resigning one's self to the other person...

    He Was My Closest Friend...

    And things got crazy...we fought all the time. He was exceptionally hurtful, in both thought and deed. Never have a felt so demoralized, dehumanized as a person, and a person of worth. We don't talk at all, but I've forgiven him, and I hope on some level he can forgive me...

    You Are Forgiven

      All people on this planet have two things in common; we all have a place where we began and we will have a place where we end; life and death are inevitable and what we do with the life that has been given to us is within our power.  If we see the world as a...

    But Not All

    There are some people who have hut me that I have a hard time forgiving. Mostly because they refuse to change. How can someone be in therapy for so long and make no progress? I try, but I am frustrated by it.
