Forgiveness

Hey everyone,

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while but I thought I’d write about forgiveness today.

Forgiveness is really important. And a lot of people don’t understand what it actually means and this is coming from a person who thought they did (emphasis on thought.)

Forgiveness is not saying that what happened was okay because what happened most likely was not okay at all. Forgiveness is not saying it could have been different but i will move on. It’s not deciding that yeah I will be a really nice person and forgive them.

Instead, forgiveness is accepting what happened and the way it happened and understanding that what happened couldn’t have been any other way. Forgiveness is not letting the past hold you prisoner. It is: not letting the past change your future.

If you forgive you don’t only let yourself live in the present but also you let the person that was wrong forgive themselves.

Of course whatever happens may change you as a person and that’s okay, you might become a bit more distrustful but that’s okay. Things change and so do people.

So what I’m trying to say is if you have someone that’s done wrong to you, forgive them. If not for their sake than for your own because you do not want their mistakes ruing your future. *virtual hugs*

Lots of love,

Rosypop xxx

    I absolutely love this. For years i was kind of trapped by the idea that forgiveness was allowance; to forgive someone was to allow their behaviour to happen again. But youre right – forgiveness is only not.holding onto resentment or anger any longer. Its not allowing people back or letting things happen again; its about accepting that it did happen and moving on without any bitterness or resentment
