Forgiveness doesn't excuse their behavior. Forgiveness prevents their behavior from destroying your heart. Deciding not to forgive hurts not only the other person but you as well. Not learning to forgive hardens the heart and makes shallow the soul.
"I used to hold grudges until I realized that most people are narcissistic and their actions are driven by an unhealthy self-interest and not maliciousness towards me. I have since freed myself from this needless burden." - Steve Maraboli V E R D A D.
