When you forgive you give yourself wings to fly again, but never forget the painful cause and the high cost of those wings. ~~Angela www.calligraphyby...

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.

Words by which to live. I know a lot of people, including myself, who needs to let go of the past and focus in fixing the future. We're a family for a reason, cause we're the only ones that can make it work, if we work together.

I have always loved this quote. Forgiveness does not mean that you are ok with the actions that have been done to you, but that you accept that it could not have been any different.

Forgiving is really about letting it go on your end and not carrying around the anger that eats you up.

MUST READ: Forgive Them Even if They're NOT Sorry. dalepartridge.com...

Forgiveness. If you are angry, sin not. A lot of the times, we are chastised for anger, or for being uncharitable to others. Fair enough; that chastisement is deserved. But do we think enough about how holding onto anger and lack of charity hurts US by weighing down our souls? Think of forgiveness in terms of taking care of YOURSELF, too.

"Be the First ... the First to Love...The First to Forgive...and the First to say.... I am Sorry" ♥ ♥ ♥

Every single day. I have no ill words of ANY one in my history. They brought me to today. :) Thank you. And I wish you well.

Confession = Forgiveness. Focus on the gift of grace received. Don't let anyone make it all about guilt trips and don't let anyone convince you to throw this very important gift-- the gift of being reconciled to God-- away. It is okay to struggle with going to Confession, but know that God is merciful and patient. Confession is where you get to know him and know yourself as he does. Now, is that great, or what?

You deserve that your mind no longer induces the same thoughts of when they hurt you over and over again. Thus, to forgive them is to forgive yourself. As it might well be that unconsciously you've judged yourself guilty of what they did to you. You never were.
