You can forgive, but you don’t have to associate with that person ever again. Some will never stop hurting you!
The only one you hurt is yourself. If you don’t forgive, it’s not worth hanging on to negative feelings. I want “the power”. ~ Pamela Clark
If you can forgive it makes you way more powerful than those who’ve hurt you. Forgiving does not mean forgetting, because that pain as cruel as it was, has made you the stronger person. ~ Sally Little
