Thought for the day

Forgiveness is not always instant, but progressive. Sometimes the hurt we’ve experience is rather hard to be forgotten instantly, therefore it takes time not only to heal from the hurt, but to also forgive those who have hurt you.

I am not encouraging you to hang onto the hurt, or unforgiveness, I am just letting you know that it’s ok to slowly process, but at the same time, don’t allow anyone to make you feel guilty because you haven’t forgiven as quick as they think you should. ❤️ – Brother Henry Harris

  1. Depending on what the person did to you it can take years to forgive. But it’s not possible to forget. In fact you need to remember so the same thing does not happen again. Learn the lesson. Cut out People who are toxic, abusive and manipulative. I have absolutely No relationship with most of my paternal cousins and no regrets. Over time the pain has lessened but I will never forget the horrible things that they said about my brother Stephen or my Mom. Leopards don’t change their spots. Liars, drug addicts, felons and Ex-cons stay the same.

    I value my life and my brother Stephen life. I will never ever open the door to let them back in. That would be a fatal mistake. Forgive from afar. One is not obligated to have relationships with everyone. Would you rather see me alive or would you rather place Flowers at my grave?

    As Maya Angelou once people show you who they are Believe them.
