My Favorite Quotes on Forgiveness.

Forgiving doesn’t mean forgetting, nor does it mean that by forgiving you are saying that what someone did was okay. It just means that you’ve let go of the anger towards someone, or towards yourself which is the most difficult thing especially when you need to forgive your own-self but it is the wisest thing one can do. But that can be easier said than done. If forgiveness was easy, everyone would be doing it.It takes lots of courage to let go that feeling of anger and guilt and especially when you can hurt someone back but you decide to forgive them instead, only a brave soul can do it.
