it infuriates me when people tell me “lifes too short to not forgive people!” like NO lifes too short for me to continually allow abusive and manipulative behavior in my life and live in a constant state of anxiety bc I want to be “nice” or whatever

That’s not what it means. At all. It means literally what it says. Forgive. It’s not saying you should just let more people just like that control you, it’s saying that you shouldn’t hold a grudge against them. You obviously misunderstood the concept of forgiveness. Forgiving IS NOT forgetting. Never forget anything. Life is about the experience, so you take that experience and you LEARN from it. Avoid similar people, but don’t hate. Hating only brings more hate, and more pain. Let go of your hatred of the person, not of your mistrust of the type of person. Live life looking foreward, not blinded by hindsight.



where the fuck has this been all my life?????????
