Forgiveness is a choice. We may not be able to choose to wipe away the hurt that someone has caused but we can choose to cast off the bitterness, anger, and feelings of the need for revenge and justice. How? Trust in God, believe His word, and turn judgment over to Him. Once we let God take over, we can start to let the negative feelings go. –Elmer Laydon
Yesterday I was thinking about Nelson Mandela and I came across this amasing quote today and I just thought of how inspiring he is. He spent nearly 22 years in prison that is such a long time and he was punished for something he believed in. I think we all need to take something from him as he managed to forgive all those people who were so horrible to him and sent him to prison for doing what was right and some of us can't even forgive a friend <3
I am peaceful now knowing I am happy seeing the person I love happy with someone else. People can call me weak but I know how strong I am accepting the fact that I am loving someone who does not love me back. Not many can reach that level of freedom.
