I've learnt a massive lesson in forgiveness this month; it hit me like a ton of bricks, right in my heart, right in my soul, it brought me to my knees and to God for guidance.
I had an encounter with someone who was very dear to me, who I loved so much but who also hurt me just as hard.
I discovered during our moment, they will never say sorry, I’ll always be the one that walked away.
It was hard lesson to learn; one I knew would happen but didn’t want to believe or accept.
The only thing I can change is me, I can only control what I do and how I act, not someone else.
I’m still working through forgiveness and I hope to reach there one day but this has been a step towards it, an insight in human behaviour and hearts. We are complex beings with complex thoughts and emotions, we have the power to hurt or to heal and we have the power to forgive in time.
Do you have a lesson in forgiveness?
