I think the strongest people in the world are
those who can find it in their hearts to forgive others.
Think about it, how hard is it to forgive someone who hurt you?
How hard is it to forgive someone that made you cry?
How hard is it to forgive someone that broke your trust?
I'll answer that,
pretty fucking hard.
I struggle so much to forgive people every day. I'm the type of person that holds a grudge. If I had it my way, I'd hate everyone that hurt me, forever.
Yeah, a lot of people don't deserve to be forgiven. There's only so much shit a person should be allowed to get away with. But if you really think about it,
it's so much easier to hate someone than forgive them.
Forgiving takes courage.
Forgiving is hard.
When you take the time to really forgive someone,
it's fucking hard.
You have to go back through that pain, work yourself through it, and accept the fact that it happened. Forgiveness takes hours, days, even years. I think one thing people need to realize is that every thing that happened in their life had purpose. Every heartbreak, every sleepless night, every tear has its purpose. I know one thing, I would never have become as strong as I am today without every person in the world that has ever fucked me over, talked shit about me, or hurt my feelings. They may have thought they won,
but I'm happy they hurt me.
Every bad thing that anyone has ever done to me in my past has made me the person that I am today. It gave me the relationship I have today. It gave me the strength to live that I have today.
And even though I am happy, and I've come to realize how important these people were responsible for making me the person I am, and that I love, today, it's still hard for me to find it in my heart to forgive them.
So I really envy anyone out there that has the balls to forgive and come to terms with the people that hurt them in their life, because it's something I struggle with everyday.
"FORGIVE THEM, EVEN IF THEY'RE NOT SORRY."
