But, what about forgiveness?
From “110 Ways to Detect a Bad Relationship”
I know – we were all taught to forgive and keep forgiving – to turn the other cheek.
If forgiving means that you have to keep being miserable, it doesn’t make sense. Forgiving is a tool to help you let go of negative emotion and thoughts. Negative emotions drain you and steal your life and happiness. If you forgive, you don’t have to think about it anymore. You are free. You are also free to move on because exposing yourself to abuse of any kind, is not OK. “Love thy neighbor as thy self”. What I’m saying is; forgive the other person for your own sake. Love yourself first. Forgive yourself. When you love and forgive yourself, you can love and forgive others.
