When deep emotional injury is done to us, the only way we can recover is by forgiving. I’m not saying that forgiveness changes the past, but I am saying that it enlarges the future. I’m not saying that forgiveness overlooks the deed; I am saying that it rises above it.
Forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself. It is not something you do “for” somebody else. When you forgive, you set a prisoner free; only to discover that the prisoner was you. Forgiveness truly is the sweetest revenge.
Forgive for the freedom to live!
