When people do you wrong, don't be afraid to forgive them.
Forgiveness is not pretending that you are unhurt or unaffected. Rather forgiveness is acknowledging your power to support yourself and to transform the pain into a lesson that will bless you.
A forgiving person is not weak, she is incredibly strong and courageous. Forgiving thoughtless words, deliberate slights, underhanded dealings, backstabbing relatives, gossiping friends, shady business practices, and unconscientious employers requires an absolute commitment to one's own development and well-being. It demands self-loyalty and eclipses self-distrust. It acknowledges the total and complete control you have over yourself and your life at all times.
Eclipse the Fear of the familar hurt. Embrace the pain, and watch the blessings reign.
