BEST of PONDER on THIS for Thursday, September 6th, 2018 by Leo Buscaglia in LOVING EACH OTHER

“Keep in mind that there is nothing wrong with us if forgiveness comes hard. We are simply human, vulnerable and far from perfect. The wrong the people do us is difficult to deal with, especially when we are innocent and can find no explanation for another’s behavior. Whey should we forgive and forget? We forgive, for the price we pay for not forgiving is too great.

To bear grudges, to harbor hate, to seek revenge, are all self-defeating and lead us nowhere. They neither satisfy nor heal. They keep us from moving forward and starting again. They bury positive energies in negative actions which serve only to exhaust and deplete us. They keep us suspicious and hesitant to trust again. They destroy our creativity, and retard our growth.”

Leo Buscaglia, in “Loving Each Other”
