It is not always easy, but it is definitely necessary. Shit happens. Mistakes are made. Sometimes, people are caught up in the confusion. Sometimes, people get hurt.
It is easy to want revenge on someone who has wronged you, but there is nothing to gain from revenge. Also, revenge tends to create more problems, because for some people there is no such thing as “getting even”. Instead, forgive and forget. Give that person room to mature, and they will grow. Let them see the error of their ways. Not only will they help themselves, they will also help those around them.
It is time we have more faith in each other. Sure, we’ve done some messed up shit to each other in the past, but we will never move on if we cannot forgive and forget.
