As someone who grew up with abuse of many forms, I’ve grown to understand that forgiving another does not make you weak or less than.

It’s not easy work. It’s a goddamn struggle. Especially for people like me who struggle to let others in their lives.
I still wrestle with what forgiveness is and is not.
There’s a lot inside me on this topic, but no ready paragraphs at the moment.
