To forgive is to set a prisoner free and to realise the prisoner was you. ~Lewis B. Smedes
I have forgiven not because I wanted to amend relationships but rather to free myself from the seething that burned my hearteach time I reflected on that personthat needed forgiving or the thing I needed to forgive myself for. However! I’m not Saint worthy, those forgiveness is in my heart, there are still a few underlying things the soul refuses to let go. Has it made me bitter? Nope! But it has made me cautious and more aware of my short falls.
“I refuse to permit anything or anyone to steal my joy regardless of how dire the circumstance is. Happiness is now a way of living for me because I decided a decade ago that it was time to take charge and become the captain of my own thoughts and beliefs.” ~Edmond Mbiaka
