Forgiveness doesn’t mean you don’t remember your hurts. It’s something that you choose to do in spite of your pain. You need to be bigger than your hurt inner child and bigger than your raging ego. Be realistic - don’t expect pain to go away because it won’t straight away. That always takes time. True forgiveness is whole hearted and doesn’t look back - it is about continuing with your lifes’ journey.
"Don’t wait to feel in the mood to forgive. Take yourself in hand and set out toward the serenity you seek. Forgiveness is your choice to make." - Toni Sciarra Poynter
