Hello friends, Forgiveness is a difficult topic.
Not forgiving a person is a heavy burden. When we keep these negative emotions, we are hurting ourselves spiritually.
If you don't forgive, the hurt and the betrayal may eat you up for years to come and in the end you really are just poisoning yourself.
Someone I was very close to has betrayed me, it took me years to not feel the pain. I prayed continuously for a connection again, I even painted about it.
The connection never got rekindled but the clarity came. The clarity was that I were to forgive but not to forget. The lesson was for me to realize that I need to accept the situation, forgive myself and the person.
I also realized that I didn't want her in my life anymore because her betrayal has caused me a lot of pain and the toxic relationship is not conducive to my life and the people around me.
It took me eight years to learn this lesson. Finally I have made a decision and I do believe it is the answer from my prayers. It is o.k to forgive but not forget.
With honor in spirit and in mind,
