Rising above it all
|oh lord it's hard to be humble|
For the offence you gave,
for the disrespect you show,
for your lack of shame or acknowledgement of guilt...
I forgive you.
I forgive you immediately, comprehensively, retrospectively, proactively, and aggressively. Before you have the chance.
I forgive you because I will not carry the burden of resentment. I will not have my thoughts tainted by bitterness. I will not be distracted from the enjoyment of my days by unrewarding disputes.
Let my unconditional forgiveness show: in the greater scheme of things, on the scale of what really matters, in terms of peace of mind and lasting happiness, I am in control, and you are insignificant.
Not for your sake, do I forgive you, but for my own.
If you prefer less introspective fare, my other blog is for the more practical and professionally-minded reader
