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.”

  1. Beautiful thought…….but my perspective about this, is a bit different…..FORGIVENESS & MERCY, according to me is a SOLE attribute of Almighty…..We, as humans…don't forgive….at least not as a deliberate nor voluntary act/decision……We just go through a process of evolution on deeper levels of thought and emotion, resulting from a particular agony or hurt or deception or rejection etc! And this constantly forces our mental resources to overcome this pain anyhow. Then depending upon individual pre-dispositions, core- personality, up bringing, counselling and divine inspiration, one is UN- CONSCIOUSLY guided to a silent transformation, where that suffering no longer seems to affect our existence, at least NOT the way it used to!! WHO DID THIS……That vindictiveness, rebelliousness, anger, frustration, worthlessness…..ALL FADES AWAY…….and that too involuntarily…..WE TOTALLY UNAWARE OF THIS INSIDUOUS PHENOMENON!! And then we smile and feel that we really have grown wiser….matured in life!! Do you agree??
