Panicking and being anxious, like being unforgivening, only kill you. We think that if we forgive it lets the other party off the hook…like it makes it ok. Not so. The same way we think that if we have peace about a tough situation, that we’re saying everything is ok or that we’re minimizing the issue. Also not so.
Forgiveness is the method to release yourself from someone else’s chokehold.
Peace is the method to release yourself from the world’s chokehold.
