Forgiveness and Lily Tomlin

~Lily Tomlin "Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better past." Pondering this quote by Lily Tomlin feels soooo liberating! Any thoughts to share about how you feel it.... anyone?

We can hope only to improve the present and in so doing, improve the future.

Forgiveness is very liberating! When I mentioned forgiveness to one of my friends towards his ex wife and he became very infuriated as if it implied accepting or condoning her behavior towards him.

Forgiveness is not for the other person. Actually, it's a totally selfish act of self perservation. Forgiveness is so healing - I recommend it to everyone!
