Today I decided to forgive you. Not because you apologized or because you acknowledged the pain that you caused me, but because my soul deserves. peace. - Najwa Zebian
The point of forgiving is not to make someone else feel better, it's to make your heart whole again.
The choice to forgive is, in many cases, made every single day after the injury. It isn't a one-time event because the pain often comes freshly into the memory, unbidden. We must forgive every single time we suffer again.
Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude. Martin Luther King, Jr.
