The Mechanics Of Forgiveness

No one has a license to rage. Forgiveness is the path of least resistance.

From time to time, I re-examine the concept of forgiveness. When I was younger, I wasn’t very forgiving. There were some things that I could not let go of. I wanted other people to change more to my liking, and they wouldn’t change. I once believed that if I withheld forgiveness, that they would notice. I found that if I did not forgive them, that I was only inviting suffering for myself. They were happy. I was not. So I learned to forgive.
