One of the most difficult things for we humans to do, is to forgive. Yet, I believe, it is one of the things we are to accomplish on this Earth. To forgive someone does not mean that you condone their behavior and allow them to continue to hurt you. It simply means that you forgive them and release them. By releasing and forgiving them, you release yourself. The past can never be changed. Life is full of tragedy and joy. In the end, it is not the events of life, so much as how we respond to them, that defines how joyous and successful our lives are.
