this quote has pushed me through some crazy stuff. thing is, when you're faking it with a smile on your face, enduring, you actually end up smiling. and, it's a true smile. our children know this life lesson very well.
Some people aren't really loyal to you. they are loyal to their need of you. once their need changes (like if they found someone else that would keep them from being lonely who I guess is better than you), so does their loyalty.
Forgiveness is one of the toughest thing to give to those who have wronged you, but if you can really, truly forgive, I think you open the door for people to change for the better and make real amends. The bitterest enemies can become best friends.
