Forgiveness means dismissing the blame. I made choices and there were some that were hurtful – maybe I could have made different choices?
Forgiveness means looking at my pain and learning lessons from it. It means that I had to start over with the knowledge that I might have gained something after all.
I have learned that if I can’t forgive and forget, I have to try at least to forgive or forget.
One of the most important lessons I learned in my life was to forgive and make peace before I went to bed each night. One of the most memorable things I learned from my mother was; Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath…and I haven’t.
