It's probably one of the hardest things in the world to do.

Especially for someone as stubborn as I am.

But how far can forgiveness really go?

Imagine yourself walking down the street and you see someone on the corner

The person, for no reason at all, smacks you.

Now, look within yourself. Do you have the power to forgive this person and walk away?

Be honest.

The answer is more than likely no. But if i saw someone get smacked and walk away, you'd have my respect, somewhat.

Maybe you have forgiveness for the person who smacked you for being idiotic.

That person has no idea of what you have on you, and smacking you could have very well caused their own death.

Or maybe, you really do forgive the person.

That's an awful amount of love to have within yourself.

But when you forgive someone, does that mean that you trust the person won't do what they did again?

Like yeah, i forgive you...But I'm still not walking near you.

Maybe somewhere along the line forgiveness and forgetting got mixed together.

Forgive, but remember.

They say you die by what you live by.

"Live by the sword, die by the sword"

So why exactly did the people who lived a pacifist life

Suffer a violent death?
