Forgiveness means accepting responsibility – not for causing the destruction, but for cleaning it up. It’s the decision that restoring your own peace is finally a bigger priority than disrupting someone else’s. ~ Priebe, Heidi. This Is Me Letting You Go (p. 41). Thought Catalog Books. Kindle Edition.
Forgiveness is accepting what happened
then cleaning up the mess.
It’s not sorting out blame,
not disrupting and calling attention.
It’s looking for peace, creating peace…
Forgiveness is loving and accepting,
finding the way forward,
refusing to cast blame, setting aside
the friction, passing peace around.
