increased ability to wish the offender well. Forgiveness is different from
condoning (failing to see the action as wrong and in need of forgiveness),
excusing (not holding the offender as responsible for the action),
forgetting (removing awareness of the offense from consciousness),

Love is the Way
Love communicates much more effectively, but only if the
you're expressing is honest and accurate. Sometimes
and emotion can also be effective in communicating, but only if
it's honest and accurate, and only, if you immediately follow
your outburst with a message of love and understanding, never
end with anger. If you want to solve a problem, you must learn
to communicate your ideas effectively, you must use the most
effective methods of communication, and use the most effective
methods of teaching. I'm not saying that you should never get
angry or never
express yourself emotionally
, I'm saying that
anger a lot of times interferes with your message, and not just
that, anger can also provoke violence, and anger can also be
hurtful and traumatic to the receivers of your anger.
So love is
. But you must Learn the Way of
Love, and that is done by educating yourself with the the
best knowledge and skills that society has to offer.
And that is what
I'm working on
In order to connect with people and to
have healthy interactions, you have to
learn to accept people for who they are
. This is not saying
that you should ignore someone's differences, it's just saying
that you should not let other peoples differences get in the way
of understanding them. You don't want to force people to change,
or blame them for not changing, you just want to show people
that changing, modifying or adjusting is not that difficult or
complex, and that everyone goes through changes their whole
life, with some of those changes improving life and other
changes making things worse.
"I don't hate people who do horrible
things, after all, you can't hate ignorant people, ignorant
people don't know what ignorant is, there for we have to find
more ways to communicate and educate each other."
A great song about forgiveness is from
Aguilera called "Hurt"
"I don't forgive
people because I'm weak, I forgive them because I am strong
enough to know that people make mistakes."
