"To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” ~ Lewis B. Smedes
For so many it seems impossible to truly forgive someone and move on....
Forgiving yourself and others can be very difficult sometimes: especially if you are operating on a lower state of consciousness.

They have to cut out and discard their hurts and the one and only sure way is by forgiveness.
