"If we can forgive what’s been done to us . . .
If we can forgive what we’ve done to others . . . If we can leave all of our stories behind. Our being villains or victims. Only then can we maybe rescue the world." ~ Chuck Palahniuk
Forgiveness is to recognize that whatever I think you did to me or whatever I think I did to you, in Truth had no effect on who you are or who I am. Our essence is unchangeable. No healing can take place as long as that Truth is challenged. No healing can take place as long as the idea of victim still has the slightest appeal.
