Forgiveness can get confused – here is an explanation 


I feel like that we sometimes forget that forgiveness doesn’t make their actions good, you’re just simply letting it go from your own self. It’s some deep stuff but it’s true. If we hold on to something in our hearts for a long time, eventually we will do more damage to ourselves than the person who hurt us. That’s why God talks about forgiving so much in the scriptures. Same thing about love. We can still love everyone in the world, but that doesn’t mean we have to agree with them. 

Forgiveness & love are for our own peace. It doesn’t excuse/making you agree with the other person.  I hope this makes sense 😉 
I’ve been learning this over the years with all of the challenges my family has faced, and I’ve learned a lot about forgiveness & love. 

Forgiving someone can be something really little like when you were younger & your sibling argued with you, or it can be much much bigger. When it’s something that is that big, it’s really important to forgive quicker, because like the quote says, it can destroy your heart. 

I hope we will never forget this as we grow into adults & when life hits us with challenges I pray that we will be ready & will be quick to forgive.

  1. Sometimes a victim becomes more empowered when given permission to not forgive. Equally, and perhaps more important, is learning to acknowledge your missteps and forgive yourself. Self-forgiveness is often the first step toward a more loving and positive relationship with yourself, and therefore with others.
