To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on February 19, 2015 in Picture Quotes

The more chances you give someone the less respect they’ll start to have for you. They’ll begin to ignore the standards that you’ve set because they’ll know another chance will always be given. They’re not afraid to lose you because they know no matter what you won’t walk away. They get comfortable with depending on your forgiveness. Never let a person get comfortable disrespecting you.

    Forgiving someone doesn’t mean being a doormat and lowering your standards. You can forgive someone without giving them another chance to hurt you. Breaking a relationship doesn’t mean you are harboring resentment or unforgiveness. You need to look after yourself and respect yourself. You can forgive someone and give them another chance. It really depends on your relationship with the other person and what the offense is. You shouldn’t be allowing yourself to stay in toxic relationships – however, being unforgiving winds up hurting yourself even more. It tends to become like a cancer in your soul becoming bitter. Keep your standards – and remember – forgive and it will be forgiven you. We all make mistakes.

    all great but how do you deal with people that constantly brag about themselves and make you feel bad about yourself in a work situation even tho we are the ones doing all the heavy work? Management sees and does nothing as these people kiss butt. We all need our jobs.

    Forgiveness does not equate to reconciliation and is an act of self love in order to preserve yourself.

    I love chances.I don’t abuse them.I find them as the most direct and purest way to believe in people, to put effort in understanding and kindness.Without the second chances kindness couldn’t exist.You stumble and fall, but somebody gives you a hand to continue.Another matter is if that person expects something in return.
