Inspirational Forgiveness quotes to heal the wounds from old friends and the obstacles of life

I was once told that the difference in people resides in their ability to forgive and move on. We’ve all been hurt; by strangers and even by family. We’ve all been rejected by people who we thought would never turn their back on us. We all face disappointment on a regular basis. That’s not up for debate.

The question is, how long will we hold on to it? How long will it take for us to say, “Enough is enough, I’m ready to move on.” Moving on doesn’t come from deleting memories and just ignoring your past. It can come from a place where we say, “I don’t agree with that person, I don’t know why they did that, but…I’m ready to forgive them and finally move on with my life.”

Forgiveness is a skill. Forgiveness can be learned. It can be strengthened and it can be generated.
