To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless. — GK Chesterton (via myquotelibrary)

Growing older, I’ve become better at holding grudges aka forgiveness gets harder.

Forgiveness is troubling… because I know that I’m always a bit too slow in giving it to others, and many times I don’t feel like I have either the strength or courage to mention it. I guess it really is something like “swallowing your pride” because there’s just a hindrance that I have to put out of my mind in order to follow through. That and I believe I hold onto grudges a bit too long as well… Perhaps even more frustrating is the fact that I have a difficult time forgiving myself. In some situations, it’s easy, but usually, it’s the little things that get to me. Simple mistakes, mind blank, or confusion that make me wonder why I can’t just get it right. But, instead of focusing on this, I shall start forgiving.

Everyone says forgiveness is a lovely idea, until they have something to forgive. — C. S. Lewis (via theprincessleah)

Forgive, forget. Bear with the faults of others as you would have them bear with yours. Be patient and understanding. Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious.

Zig Ziglar

when you realize how quickly time goes by and how transient our lives are, you tend to want to make the most out of every moment and every relationship.
