Did Someone Hurt You?

Someone hurt you, maybe yesterday, maybe a lifetime ago, and you cannot forget it.  The hurt went deep, and it keeps on hurting you now. You are not alone. We all muddle our way through a world where even wellmeaning people hurt each other.
When we invest ourselves in deep personal relationships, we often open ourselves to hurt. Forgiveness is God’s invention for coming to terms with a world in which, despite their best intentions, people are unfair to each other and hurt each other deeply. He began by forgiving us. And He invites us all to forgive each other. – Lewis B. Smedes

The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.   —Marianne Williamson
