Forgiveness is a trait everyone needs because its what holds the country's of the world together. People should always learn to forgive and forget, because forgiveness allows you to move on to better things to greater dreams and stronger relationships.

Your life experience IS what it IS and ISN'T what it ISN'T - so don't make your life experience what it ISN'T...ie...don't turn your life experience into marvelous dramas or into horror stories. EMBRACE life - LOVE it - LIVE it! (forgive and forget what you can't) You'll be surprised what a difference it makes!

When defenses come down, we are able to relate more authentically with our fellow human beings. Out of this type of relating comes joy, love and peace.
