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

I forgive you. Not for you

“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

    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.

      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 🙂

      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.
