I forgive for purely selfish reasons

I forgive not because I particularly want to

Not because I feel the person worthy

Not because the situation doesn’t bother me anymore


I forgive for the simple fact that it benefits my soul and my day to day living to forgive those that have wronged me

Because then I don’t have to harbor the hatred, anger or fear anymore

I can release all the emotions surrounding the circumstances and move on

Without that weighing me down

And sometimes it takes me a while

Sometimes a great while

But I always try to come around to it

For my own sake

And maybe too with the hope

no matter how slim it may be

That those I’ve transgressed against can also forgive me

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew myself...here that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol
