Forgive those who have hurt you, for they are hurting too. Let grudges go, and instead replace them with a recognition of humanity, in all its messiness, and fuckedupness, and beauty. No one strives to hurt you, not many people at least. Wish love instead. Feel empathy for the pain some people must be in to behave the way they once did, or still do. Don’t “kill them with kindness.” Set them free by freeing yourself. Choose love.
