Rising above it all

Forgiveness

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.

I win!



If you prefer less introspective fare, my other blog is for the more practical and professionally-minded reader
