My dear,

What is forgiveness you ask?

Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better past.

It’s the realization that the past cannot be changed, and that only a release of it shall create a better future and present. It’s a realization that holding on to what could have been is costraining you from what is and what can be.

That’s why when you forgive someone you suddenly feel lighter. For the past is heavy, and when you let go of it you’re weightless.

Falsely yours,
