Needed.

Sometimes, the smallest phrases speak the loudest volumes....



I needed this reminder. 


"Hating someone (or holding onto grudges) is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die."


It's all pointless. Anger, malice, being offended, hurt or bitterness....



If you have enough Humility in your heart to be touched by these simple truths, like I have (as of last night) been... no matter how hard the situation may be, just let it go. Forgive and be forgiven


"Not only our eternal salvation depends upon our willingness and capacity to forgive wrongs committed against us. Our joy and satisfaction in this life, and our true freedom, depend upon our doing so. When Christ bade us turn the other cheek, walk the second mile, give our cloak to him who takes our coat, was it to be chiefly out of consideration for the bully, the brute, the thief? Or was it to relieve the one aggrieved of the destructive burden that resentment and anger lay upon us?" 
--Marion D. Hanks, "Forgiveness: The Ultimate Form of Love"
