Be kind, from a distance
Don't let fools into your life.
Can you truly love someone and still expect them to behave like an idiot? Can you treat someone who you know will hurt you with kindness without compromising your emotional health?
Yes. But it’s tricky.
You won’t get through life without someone hurting you. If you refuse to forgive them for it, your mental and emotional health will suffer. And let’s face it, who has time to carry a grudge anyway?
So much of our trouble about forgiveness stems from misunderstanding it. Forgiveness really isn’t for the person who hurt you. It’s for your own soul’s health.
