Get Out of Jail Free: Hurt people hurt people (sometimes)

It's been a long time since I've blogged...since Easter Sunday, in fact!

What brings me to blogging again? An excellent post on another blog, on forgiveness. "AnneDroid" writes:
Forgiving has absolutely nothing to do with human fairness which demands an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and it doesn't mean excusing and brushing things aside. When we forgive someone we still recognise the hurt for what it is, but instead of lashing out or biting back, we try to see beyond it and to view the person with good will rather than ill will, whether they deserve it or not, because forgiving them makes us better.

The entire post is chock-full-o-wisdom. Check it out.
