“Forgiveness is letting go of the hope that the past can be changed.”
I love this idea. Forgiveness is letting go of all the hopes you are clinging to regarding changing the past. The past can NOT be changed. It is the past. Until they invent a time machine, you’re stuck by the limitations of time. And – let’s face it – if you did have a time machine, would you really want to go back in time and change the past? After all, didn’t the past make you into the incredible human being you are today? Your past is you. It formed you. It shaped you. It changed you. It influenced you. Sure, it hurt. I get it. But let that shit go and realize that the shitty past you had – actually helped you become the miracle you are! Forgiveness is not for the offending party, it is for you. Forgive so you can forget. Move on. Ignore the past (after you embrace it). Live in the moment with the promise of a happy tomorrow. The future is yours for the taking!
