"The true mark of maturity is when somebody hurts you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back." // (I don't want to label what "the true mark of maturity" is, but this idea of empathy vs revenge is important to me.
Would you like people to judge you on your past? Jesus died for our sins and we were forgiven. Don't keep holding a person's past over their head like you knew back then and you have a right to judge. Judge not, lest ye be judged.
