Forgiveness is a decision. We decide to cut off the bitter root and plant a seed of love. We cannot blame ourselves if it does not grow; sometimes the other party has poisoned the soil too much. But we must keep the bitter roots cut and plant more and more seeds of love. Forgiveness begins when we make that choice; long before we see the results.
Im going to get a poster of this and remind myself of this everyday or anytime I feel down. There's only one of me. Out of billions of people there's only ONE of me. Be you,do you,and most of all love yourself and if there's something you don't like about yourself then work at it. Cuz if you can't love yourself then how can you truly be happy? ♥
..And Jesus said, "Love God with all your heart, mind and soul, and love others as yourself." ...measure all your decisions and beliefs against that. Make sure that you are offering others the same rights, courtesies, and respect that you expect for yourself. If you do that, you can't go wrong. ~ Glennon Melton
