Forgiveness

"Forgiveness is an act of the will, and the will can function regardless of the temperature of the heart." - Corrie ten Boom

Dutch Christian Corrie ten Boom (born April 15, 1892) helped many Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. For her heroic efforts, the Queen of the Netherlands knighted her in 1962.



At times forgiving someone is not an easy thing.. Keeping resentments or hanging on to the past is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die..

You are so right. Keeping resentments IS like poisoning yourself!

You are right. I want to get over this resentment I am harboring from what happened this past Autumn, but it is so hard to let go. Probably because I want to know who back stabbed me (yes, I have my suspicions) and why the fuck they did such a low thing. I think once I would know the reasons, I would be able to let it go more.

You won't like this.. Pray for the person.. At first its really difficult to do.. Make yourself do it.. After a while it will get easier.. Soon you will feel sorry for them.. Good luck.. I know the feeling..
