Takes a lot of strength to forgive someone who has cut you like a sharp knife. The truth is you can never be the same towards them again. Never. And the fact that someone demeaned your expectations will always haunt you. No matter how many years pass, it will still hurt, it will be like a pin prick, sharp and for a moment. But it will cause you pain. And it will affect your peace and your wholesomeness towards yourself, because you will never be able to believe anyone (completely) again. You will blame yourself for putting them above you, for putting your trust in them, for seeing them as a family, as a friend.
But you know, it was never your fault. And it wasn’t wrong on your part to believe that in this world of uncertainties, there was a possibility of someone being certain and truthful to you. Believing someone is a brave and beautiful thing.
Like everyone, I have had my share of bitter-sweet memories with people. Some taught me lessons and some made houses for themselves in my heart. I know, the more I try to hold the grudge against someone, the most pain it will cause me. It will disrupt my peace, my tranquillity, my mental harmony.
I find it very difficult to forgive someone, but eventually I do. I do it for myself. It’s a favour I’m returning back to myself. Because I definitely deserve better. And so do YOU. Revenge, may sound very satisfying. But the truth is, it isn’t as sweet as it seems.
Tonight, no matter how badly someone treated you or played you, just forgive them. Let this burden off your chest. Because, Life is a beautiful journey. And we have a very limited time to enjoy it whole-heartedly.
