The spiritual work of being human is learning how to love and how to forgive.
– Kerry Egan, My Faith: What people talk about before they die
I like the above post a lot, and that quote stuck out to me. I’ve been dealt my share of hard blows in life — not worse or more than anyone else’s, but mine nevertheless — and I wonder if some people (me included) already know how to love, and so our spiritual growth comes from having to learn how to forgive. Loving is easy for me, forgiveness is not. And maybe it needs to be.
- to stop feeling anger toward (someone who has done something wrong) : to stop blaming (someone)
- to stop feeling anger about (something) : to forgive someone for (something wrong)
- to stop requiring payment of (money that is owed)
