How can you ‘forgive’ someone for just being them?
You don’t forgive.
Or atleast you ‘ try ‘ to understand.
Most times when you perceive people have wronged you , its because you have your own notions of ‘ right ‘ and ‘ wrong’ and they have theirs.
Its interesting to note that their concepts of ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ are AS true for them as yours are for you.
So what gives in a situation like this?
Understanding , empathy and compassion.
These overcome the whole confusion because in order to access them , you have to step up to a whole new level…leaving the precious ‘ Rights’ and ‘wrongs’ below.
Only then are you able to see the bigger picture.
Understanding precedes (and sometimes even takes away the need for) forgiveness.
