i forgive you.

i realized this morning that i've reached the point of forgiveness.

this is big.

i wasn't specifically aiming for it, but i felt it when it happened.

at first, i just needed keep breathing. that was difficult enough some days.

then there was processing the seething anger.  i was afraid that alone would consume me.

although it doesn't excuse shit, or change what happened, or erase the boundary lines, it is so liberating to know that...i forgive.

give thanks...

I can't wait to get there...but then again, perhaps I can. Thanks given.

forgiveness is truly setting a prisoner free and ultimately discovering that the prisoner was ALWAYS you. congrats suga ;)

remember that forgiveness is for YOU not for them

it makes no sense because 9 times out of 10 the person you hold anger for doesnt care that you're angry so you sittin there angry for nothing

its no benefit to anybody

@ james - true. that is often a factor.

in this and the other situation where i had to deeply forgive someone, both people cared that i'd been hurt, but for a long time were mostly oblivious to what their actions had caused.

This is both admirable and beautiful, for a lot of us are still unable to forget, let alone forgive most things we probably need to or should have done a long, long time ago...
