“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” -Andrew Carnegie
When you’re struggling emotionally with forgiveness, look beyond the pain you feel to understanding why the other person has done wrong. This kind of thinking is revolutionary, perhaps even intimidating, because it forces us to look at ourselves in a more critical light in a time when we want to be comforted.
But pushing ourselves out of our comfort zone may be the only way to actually make a positive difference in our lives.
When you have sex with someone you’re not married to, you are tossing the gift of your body and purity away. Guilt, shame and regret are the results of this union-not love and not happiness.
