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.
Alot of people think I should give up and move on with my life for being treated wrong a time or two. But forgiveness is key. I have a big heart and am willing to forgive and give second chances. yes it may be a risk, but i& willing to take it!
