Something About Forgiveness

Forgiveness is hard. Sometimes forgiving someone is more of a journey and doesn’t happen instantly. Forgiving doesn’t always mean forgetting. We all have experiences where we are deeply hurt and we cannot forgive and that’s a very human thing. To err is human and to forgive is divine as the old saying goes. Reconciliation is a good thing but in some instances may never happen.

Right now some people have been harmed to the point where forgiveness is the furthest thing from their minds let alone their hearts. I know I am not perfect and I have made my share of mistakes and all can say is that forgiveness is a gift and it’s a hard thing to give.

Forgive as you have been forgiven if you can.
