I came across this quote – “Weak people revenge, strong people forgive, intelligent people ignore.”
While in jest, I find this very true. Forgiveness, while an act of strength, does mean you spend time thinking about what happened. And that is often not worth the effort. Sh*t happens. Depending on how we’re feeling, it might even seem personal and directed at us. Sometimes it is. Most of the time, it really isn’t. Mountains and mole hills are often matters of perspective.
As I grow up, I’m learning to ignore so much more than before. I’m also learning that it is best to keep intensely focused on what we need to do and just be kind.
The world will roll on without us.
