Thoughts - September 1, 2016

"But then again—if one doesn’t forgive someone, doesn’t one, in a sense, lose that person forever?”
― Laura Lippman, I'd Know You Anywhere.
You know what? This is truth. When we refuse to forgive someone, whether out of anger or stubbornness, we need to ask ourselves if we are willing to lose that person forever. Perhaps that answer is occasionally yes. Good riddance. But I have a feeling that is not usually the case. Time puts things in perspective. What made us so angry in the first place may even be more understandable as we grow and change and experience. We may ache to have that person back in our lives. is worth asking the question: do I want to lose this person forever? - Beth Almond Ford
