Quotes on Forgiveness
The truth is forgiveness isn't about the other person. It's always about us. It's about allowing ourselves to heal, to move on and to let the experience change us in a positive way. There will always be love and light if we open that door. When we allow ourselves to finally forgive, let go and make peace with a situation that cannot be changed, we give ourselves the freedom to love others and love life again. ~ B. Uyemura
It's a strange feeling when you are chastised for standing up for yourself against traumatic and soul crushing mental and emotional abuse. I'm glad to say that I can now walk away the better person. It's just a shame that I've been so damaged that both forgiveness and forgetting will never come into play in my situation. All in all, a very good day with a positive outcome. Time to smile :)
God is a God of Second Chances-and third and fourth and even more chances. He loves you. God’s approval is not based on your achievements. It is based solely on the fact that you are His child and He sees the best in you. There is nothing you can do, and there’s nothing anyone else can do, that will ever change your value in God’s eyes.
