Everyone makes mistakes; however, learning to let go and forgive others of their errors does not mean that you agree with what they did.
When you forgive me, I am still responsible for having done wrong. No one is perfect; therefore, we go through life with the mind-set that people will have lapses in judgement, but they are generally good. When we see others we see them based on their strenghts rather than their weeknesses.
Where would we be without forgiveness? Our lives would be empty and unlivable; our relationships with our friends and families would be impossible.
Imagine the peace of mind and happiness we could create if we learn to forgive and free ourselves of anger, resentment, and negative thoughts about others when they wrong us.
