(Quote) Journey Toward Forgiveness

journey toward forgiveness

Just the road ahead of you that is supposed to lead to forgiveness. Still, I keep waiting for that apology. How can we move on when the people who have hurt us do not apologize? That is the question I ask myself each day. 

What steps have you taken to move toward forgiving yourself and others who have hurt you?
