• Giving up grudges is for quitters. (kidding)
    • Roaring
      Punny guy Ano : )
  • I forgive because the only alternative is to allow myself to be burdened and dragged down. Took me a while to learn that. Doesn't take long once we learn not to take ourselves so seriously.
    • Roaring
      Very well said.
  • Not sure if it was my son giving my grandson away or being molested. Took into my 40's to forgive the molestation and my mother for not protecting me after my sisters told her what was going on and she chose to believe the stepfather and call them liars, much less to forgive my son. He wasn't mentally well at the time, but then neither was my mom.
  • I've had some tough ones that I don't want to share here, so I'd say forgiveness is a journey not a destination, then comes the days when you no longer think about it, except maybe once in a while if you see something on TV or something that jogs your memory, and you no longer feel anger, you just see it as something in your past. You can't force forgiveness.
  • When my wife left for another man and took the dog, too. There's a reward for the dog.
  • I don't know that I've made it that far yet, but the guy driving the car that T-boned me the day my mom was killed 24 years ago on Memorial Day. I have to live with the fact that I was driving and somehow it was my fault - although it wasn't. She was the sweetest, most gentle person on earth and didn't deserve what happened to her.
