You do not have to wait for an apology in order to forgive
One can argue for an entire lifetime about who is more correct. However, this will probably not lead anywhere. Because all of us have our own truth. This book teaches that life becomes much lighter if you are even able to accept that some apologies never come from others. Regardless of how much hurt has been caused by someone else, the key to overcoming this disappointment and heartache is to be grateful for every experience, whether positive or negative. “Being grateful” means sending a single thought to the relevant person: Thank you for the lesson.
Stop squandering happiness, time and energy unnecessarily. Try to cancel the rental of the two chambers in the brain, the left and right hemispheres, where all bad memories and objections are supposed to be stored for life. Through forgiveness, you can disinfect this apartment within the brain. Forgiveness is a service provided primarily to yourself. In so doing, you are committed to no longer using the past against the present. Forgiveness is in no way an amnesty for the person who has caused the hurt. The other person has nothing to do with it. Forgiveness is primarily a pardon for yourself. Because you do not need somebody else’s apology to stop suffering.
If you have a problem with forgiveness, don’t worry, you will learn forgiveness.
