Always try to be as understanding as possible with those you meet along your journey. We all have our faults, our negative points, our addictions.
When someone you know or encounter treats you unfairly, try to picture them as someone you love immensely, someone you would never speak to in a harsh or unloving way. Be always ready to forgive. Life is too short and the time we have too precious to waste brooding away at someone.
Forgiveness is a gift that never stops giving. Sometimes we give it, sometimes we get it, but whenever it’s present, there’s always great joy.
