A story was mentioned that a man became angry with his wife - so he put on a blindfold (because he said he did not want to see her anymore) and went to bed. He stayed in bed for 7 years, until the bed became uncomfortable. Then he got up and continued his life. But for seven years, he trapped himself in the pain of that one incident - and lost all of life, while the person who hurt him kept living and moving on.
Maybe when we wait for the people who hurt us to get it back - or to get our repayment in life for what has happened to us - we trap ourselves and hurt ourselves more than that person did originally. And if we could just find a way to move past it, to not forget so much but forgive the person and say - I don't need for you to pay I can move past this without knowing you paid a price for what you did. . . maybe we would have better lives?
