Moving on does not mean moving out and as much as the statement sounds logical, it does not portray the truth I am seeking to address today.
I have been pondering on the topic of forgiveness and the healing process,and I have come up with some ways to help rid my heart the heavy burdens it has carried for a while now.
A friend of mine put up a question on her status wall, and I found myself drawing into her dm to respond. The question was, is it possible to fully forgive a person and never want them to be part of life? It was not the first time I encountered such a question but now more than ever I realized that it is more of a statement to me than a question.
Because it is very true that sometimes even after making peace with the people who may have wronged you, you still do not have the courage to make them your friends or keep them around. This as I would like to think and in my humble opinion does not come from a place of hate or range, but it is just a way of acknowledging that you know what you want and what not in your life.
The mere presence of the already forgiven character would be toxic and sometimes even stir up some sort of rage in you. Not that you have not moved on, but we are human, and moving on does not necessarily mean that we forget things, in fact the human mind never forgets a wrong done. What happens is that we find other thoughts to replace the hurt ones and just flow with life. Again these are just Maggy’s Thoughts and I stand to be corrected.
It is enough to forgive, and I strongly derive that it is certainly possible to forgive and never want to have anything to do with the person. Sometimes life is better with new people and memories in it. We can move on, we can forgive and we have the choice of letting go.
Can you my dear reader forgive and choose to not have anything to do with the person? Drop your thoughts here
