    Warped Colored Glasses

    What I have learned so far in this life's journey is you are only hurting you when you don't forgive. I'm a people watcher I watch my friends and family in their relationships and have learned if you hold on to un-forgiveness it starts eating at you like a cancer and before you...

    Forgiveness is important

    because I all are human being, we all make mistakes and it makes feel stronger and better person. But some deeds can't be forgiven. Some people had affected me badly, they turned me into a monster. I can't forgive myself for what I did, I wish if I could forgive myself.

    We should never hold onto a grudge

    for someone. Always forgive. But in some cases people will use that for their advantage. For example, your friend steals your game from you. He returns it when you figure out and apologizes and you let him back in. He does it again a little while later. Do you think he is...

    Closure

    I had deep, heavy hatred in my heart for many years. Warranted & righteous lava-hot loathing for two pathetic, child-abusing pieces of human effluence that had done much harm to me. I have since realized that carrying around all that negative emotional weight was dragging me...

    Most of us are doing mistakes sometimes

    and we should be happy if other people forgive us our mistakes. So we also should forgive other people if they are doing mistakes or even bad things. But I know that sometimes can happen so bad things to us that it is very difficult still to forgive or forgiveness is even...

    I know that forgiveness is absolutely important.

    BUT I also believe that repentance and accepting responsibility for one's self is important too. It truly is heartless when I hear someone berate someone who has been wronged by another person. be told that they must forgive or else. Guess what? Maybe you should also "remind...

    Even Something That Sounds So Simple Can Be Hard.

    Sometimes pride makes forgiveness difficult. In my heart and my soul though, I do not want to hold grudges. I also know that forgiveness is a practice that God would like me to perform. I once struggled with this. I was hurt by one who I thought was my friend. She invited me to...

    Forgiveness Is A Choice, Not A Feeling

    I think we all need forgiveness at one time or another in our lives because we are human and therefore are fallible  Forgiveness is a release from the burden of anger and pain  When you choose to forgive, you choose to live in the present and the future instead of the past It...

    As people, I think we all do things

    that hurt others. Some things may cause more hurt than other things, but we all do it. There are times where the hurt is unintentional. Things get out of control, and people get hurt. Holding on to the bitter feelings really doesn't do any good. It leaves you feeling angry and...

    I've been thinking lately on what I want my

    life to be and look like in terms of relationships. For this past week I've been displeasing God with all of my sins; s e.xual sins. For a time in my life I was close to God, not so much now, it was the best times of my life. I've always dreamed of a happy Loving ending but I...
