Forgiving When It Hurts
--by brindlegirl, posted Jul 6, 2020
Although I do not condone his actions and hurtful words towards me (my partner) I understand that deep down he never meant to hurt me. That deep down it is him inside that must be suffering.
To forgive isn’t to accept something or say it’s ok. To forgive is to release the poison that contaminates you when you don’t. It’s hard to forgive at times especially when anothers' actions are so hurtful but it can be done. I figure I’d rather forgive and move on than not forgive and hold on.
