Forgiveness is easy where there is no “investment”.  The “sins” that wound the spirit are often the ones committed by those with the most intimate access to us.

I’ve learned forgiveness doesn’t excuse nor accept the sin but it frees you from the toxin that would infect your heart and spirit causing bitterness and resentment.

“When you hold on to your history; you do it at the expense of your destiny”   ~ Bishop TD Jakes
