I forgive you. Not for you, but for me.

I forgive you. Not for you, but for me.

“I forgive you. Not for you, but for me. Because like chains shackling me to the past I will no longer pollute my heart with bitterness, fear, distrust or anger. I forgive you because hate is just another way of holding on, and you don’t belong here anymore.”

– Beau Taplin // F o r g i v e n e s s

  1. Sa lahat nman ng ginagawa nyang kasalanan sakin pinapatawad ko sya pag nakapaglabas nko ng sama ng loob. I always pray for him nman kahit sinasaktan nya ko ng paulit ulit ulit gusto ko pa din yung best para sa kanya. 🙂

  2. Recently I saw my childhood molester, I decided in my mind and heart to forgive him and let go of all the mixed emotions awhile back, I felt a liberating feeling, no more physical ill feelings and emotions. I truly felt at peace, even after seeing him I no longer feel uneasy around him.

    1. Its very courageous action on your part that you were finally able to forgive but such people should not be left untaught . We should not show our forgiveness as weakness. If you ever meet this man again just slap him or kiss his ass then smile and forgive him 🙂

    2. To be honest there was a time when I did want to hurt him, cuss him out,and wish nothing but bad things for him, especially after he was calling me a liar. I just look at him now and see what a sorry old man he is, and I kind of feel bad for him. Now he doesn’t have the power he used to have over me. And I wonder what could have caused him the pain to do what he did.

  3. Just about perfect. Never forget, but learn and grow. I’ll always care about her, but couldn’t do it anymore. So negative, juvenile, fake, manipulative, materialistic, self absorbed.. lost, fragile.. wounded. <3

  4. I don’t hold expectations nor hope, wishes and good will. The person becomes a stranger and out of my life. It’s sad. But this is my coping strategy. I erase this person fr my friend list. Anyone feel the same?
