Talk about a cold-blooded heart when it comes to forgiveness. Someone who could harden their heart the very second something happened and could easily keep it there forever. That’s the heart I had. It protected me from getting hurt. It protected me from feeling soft. But it delayed my own freedom. See I’ve learned now, forgiveness doesn’t mean you have to rush to trust someone again. Forgiveness doesn’t mean you have to be friends. But it does mean to forgive and let go, so that you can be forgiven for your own shortcomings. Forgiveness means not allowing a soul on this earth to stop you from living the set-free life you deserve to live. I’ve come to realize that the moment I decide to forgive and let go is the moment I decide to live again. I’ve never felt so alive.
