Unforgivable?

Photo by CarlosBravo









Nothing is unforgivable. We always can find a way to forgive. It's healthier when you seek to find a way to forgive yourself and others. I know it's never easy to do, but it's worth a try.

Here are the quotable quotes:

"He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven."
By Thomas Fuller

"One's mind has a way of making itself up in the background, and it suddenly becomes clear what one means to do."
By A.C. Benson

Uhhh, no offense, but what exactly does this post have to do with deafness, deaf culture, etc.? It should be in Extras.

Again, no offense, just pointing out the obvious.

Eddie,
I think it came in the front by an accident.

Deb Ann,

The Dali Lama said that once someone loses the ability to forgive, they have lost the meaning of life.

"The Sunflower" by Simon Wiesenthal is a VERY powerful book on forgiveness (he was a holocaust survivor struggling with his ability to forgive the SS soldiers.

I am a believer of forgiving and never forget.

*ist,

Yes, his or her life could lead to slide into a darker hole ,and how can he or she get out of the deep hole if he or she refuses to change and find the ability to forgive. My heart breaks when I see that in a person who goes through something like that.

I want to get that book you mentioned at my local library. I might write about it in an upcoming blog in the future. Thanks for sharing about this powerful book, the book that would be a benefit to anyone who sees it on this post.
Thanks again, D!

Hi Deb Ann
That's very true...forgiveness heals the soul...I can't imagine not forgiving...it would just eat me up alive if I don't forgive.
I've read one of Simon Wiesenthal's books, powerful writer...but haven't read The Sunflower, I will have to get that soon. I like Thomas Fuller's quote.
Thanks for sharing! Keep on blogging and writing poems!
Have a great day! Smiles!
