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.
It takes one person to forgive it takes two people to be reunited.
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.
You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well.
