To obtain forgiveness we must forgive. Forgiving maybe easy, but to trust again is another thing.
We made mistakes and hurt other people, even our beloved are not spared from it. There are mistakes done out of stupidity, some are intended and some unintentionally. No matter what the reason maybe, the damaged has been done and there seems no means to repair a broken trust. When we trust someone, it is like giving them a duplicate key to access our life. Nothing is private anymore and they can walk inside our mind anytime they want. That is why trust is aspecial key that one must not lose and should not break. Because once a trust is broken it cannot be formed again like how it looks when it was originally given. A broken trust cannot bring back the best relationship as it was before.
To forgive is divine and who is perfect onthis earth that never did a single mistake? Who is righteous enough to claim that he is a saint? We are all sinners and no one shall be proud to hold forgiveness. How could you bend your knees and pray asking forgiveness if you haven’t forgiven someone who made mistake unto you? Forgiving the others won’t make you a less human. Forgiving is easy, if you just think about your own mistakes then you will realize that you are not perfect. Forgiving doesn’t mean you are giving the same trust. Forgiving someone is to free your conscience from holding grudge. Forgiving is retrieving the key of trust that you once entrusted to that someone.
