Sometimes when I get really mad at someone I decide that I’m not going to forgive them no matter what. I think to myself that what they did to me is so awful I could never forgive them. At times I try to tell myself to just let go of the pain they caused me but every time I see them I’m just reminded of that pain.
But sometimes people put in the effort to make amends. I’m not really used to that happening but it has been happening recently. And so I’m faced with a dilemma – to forgive a wrong or hold a grudge?
They say forgive and never forget. I don’t know how to forget pain but I know now I have to learn how to be more forgiving.
