Why do I want to forgive him?
Because what will holding onto him do for me? It didn't help me in the past. So how will it help me in the future?
I want to forgive him because I was actually the one who lied. I lied to myself about who he had shown me to be. He was himself, I believed the idea of him- not who he really is. I move forward with the truth, and the truth is that he didn't respect me.
I want to forgive him because my loving heart has no space to store all the hurt from the past. There is more to life than remembering what is wrong with everyone, especially someone that I want to do nothing more with.
I want to forgive him because no one is perfect and in this imperfect human body I am in no state to hold anything against anyone. I want to forgive him because I am not perfect- others have forgiven me too.
