Forgiveness is not about the other person, it is about setting yourself free from the pain you are holding on to.
“Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.” – Louis B. Smedes http://www.inspiritual.biz/thought-for-the-day/
