I Forgive You Not Because You Deserve Forgiveness, But Because I Deserve Peace

By Conscious Reminder

I forgive, but I’m also learning a lesson. I won’t hate you, but I’ll never get so close to you, so you don’t hurt me again. I don’t want my forgiveness to make me look naive.

I forgive you not because you deserve forgiveness, but because I deserve peace.

There are two kinds of forgiveness. The first one is when you forgive and you give a second chance. The other one is when you forgive but you choose to go on without them. Well, this time I’m turning my back on the pain…I am moving on…ALONE!

I forgive you, but it doesn’t mean that I accept your behavior or trust you. I forgive you because of myself; because I want my life back; because I need to move on.

The fact that I forgave you doesn’t mean that I accept what you’ve done; it simply means that I made peace with it. I won’t let it control me or my life ever again. I’m taking it back.

I chose to break the shackles that were weighing me down and I’m turning my back to the past. I choose not to look back because there’s nothing I can change about it.

I will no longer pollute my heart with bitterness, fear, distrust or anger. I forgive you because hate is just another way of holding you on, and you don’t belong here anymore.

I never knew how strong I was until I needed to forgive someone who wasn’t sorry for what they’ve done and accept the apology I’ve never got. A week person could never do it.

Sometimes you don’t know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

At the end I want to say ‘Thank you for this experience’, because, obviously, it was a lesson I need it to learn; to understand that I, myself, am the person that should be the most important to me!
