Many words, Little time: Forgiveness

Forgiveness

It can save a friend’s life
or open you up to more betrayals
It can heal a broken relationship
or enable an abuser

When is it right?
How do you decide?
What’s too much?

Forgiveness is a sacrifice.
Every time it’s a balance,
a chance of losing.
You extend the olive branch to someone,
give them a chance at redemption
and risk them failing.
You risk pain,
You risk yourself.

What’s unforgivable?
When is there no chance of redemption?
Who do we sacrifice?
