“The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.” – John Green
Even when it seems irrational.
Even when someone seems unforgiveable.
Even when the person we must forgive is ourselves.
Even when the Universe seems treacherous.
Even when it hurts too much.
Especially when it hurts too much.
Forgiveness is the door to rational communication, revelation, and relief.
The labyrinth was always an illusion.
Today, I was thinking about the Mother Teresa quote, “Let no one come to you without leaving better,” while wondering if I was leaving people better or worse than I found them, which reminded me of this John Green quote.
I still need a reminder that my actions are not just mine, but create a wake that rolls over unsuspecting, and often, innocent parties.
When I am conscious and aware, I want to leave something much different than scars.
I want to leave hope: hope for those who might have given up on hope.
