Not sure I was wise enough to follow this 5 years ago but I will forever follow it in the future. Oh the life lessons I have learned...evil never wins and revenge never turns out in your favor. Not scared to admit that I learned this one the hard way :-(
Anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive. When you forgive, you release yourself from a painful burden. Forgiveness doesn't mean what happened was OK, and it doesn't mean that person should still be welcome in your life. It just means you have made peace with the pain, and are ready to let it go.
