“Forgiveness means no more feeling the need to take revenge”.
“Forgiveness means closure” .
So what does that entail?
That you will be able to tightly hug the “enemy”?
I have been bullied, made fun for as long as I can remember.
However, since things are going quite well, one could say I have found closure with there actions. I don’t feel the need to take revenge.
Yet, those bullies are my main inspiration for my blogs 😉
(Remember my post about how I would do a nice Number Two on my manager freshly washed car if I’d be a seagull?)
What about you?
Let’s take a scenario.
Let’s pretend you’re a manager of a large Firm.
People are desperate to find a job.
One day, you find a hopeless former bully applying for an open job.
There are 3 choices:
a. You don’t invited them, because you know you’d never hire them anyhow. No need to waste time.
b. You decide to invite them. Maybe there are some qualities which fit the job.
c. You invite them, knowing you would never ever in your life hire them.
You’d let them go through several difficult tests, knowing they would fail.
Followed by very intense interviews, knowing they would black out.
You’d criticize them, like they have criticized you.
Only to say “NOPE” in the end.
As for me, I guess, if I would get the chance, I’d still choose option C.
I don’t think I found complete closure just yet.
