Forgiveness does not necessarily mean reconciling a relationship.
Forgiveness is a choice.
Forgiveness doesn’t mean make a wrong a right.
“I CAN’T” EQUALS “I CHOOSE NOT TO.”
Deal with the faults of others as gently as with your own.
Your forgiveness and kindness are tested when you are challenged to offer these to those who don’t deserve them.
Where you are looking to go and the direction you are moving in is more important than where you are presently standing.
Have you noticed in life that the person who causes you the most unhappiness is you?
If you want to be happy don’t try. Make someone else happy. If you want to be unhappy, try hard to be happy.
