Since returning to Facebook today, I decided to look at a few inspiration quotes and a couple of them I don’t agree with. For example:
If someone did something bad enough to make you remove them from your life,
don’t be foolish enough to invite them back in.
I feel this sees no forgiveness. What if the other person made a mistake? What if there was something going on in their life at that time? I have let people back in after they did something bad enough for me to walk away. It is called turning the other cheek. I am not saying to trust them with the security codes to your heart; I am saying let them in the front door. One step at a time. If you don’t forgive anyone, you will end up being a lonely person. Everybody does something wrong, everyone will upset someone. Every single one of us has hurt someone who has since taken them back. I know I have. Admittedly, there are some things that can never be forgiven, and that is understandable.
Forgive. You will find yourself a lot happier for it.
