Through the grapevine, you may have learned that you should blame your parents, your teachers, your mentors, the education system, the government, etc., but never to blame yourself. Right? It’s never, ever your fault… WRONG! It’s always your fault, because if you want to change, if you want to let go and move on with your life, you’re the only person who can make it happen.
Could not have said it better myself. Showing forgiveness and grace does not mean they need to remain in your life...it simply means your heart is loving enough to let go of anything that could hold you back from continuing to be a good person
