Personal reflections on forgiveness
I think that forgiveness is meant to be a huge part of life. Maybe even the biggest part of life.
It's so, so important.
Because relationships are the most important thing in life. (I'm referring to all kinds of relationships, not specifically romantic ones). They are what make us...human.
Relationships are so easily broken. This is just the nature of being human. Therefore, we are required to forgive often.
Forgiveness is also a completely selfless act.
I think that my personal definition of a great person is:
Someone who has forgiven often and who has forgiven greatly.
This is not something that others can judge. Forgiveness is something that happens completely within us.
