what forgiveness isn’t…

“‘…It ain’t pretending nothing happened to you when it did.  It ain’t saying that what happened wasn’t no big deal and didn’t matter.  It ain’t saying the person didn’t know what they were up to, if they did.  And it ain’t deciding that the rattlesnake that bit you is now gonna be your best friend forever.  That’s just foolishness that’ll get you bit again.'”

~from “Buried in Buttercream” by G.A. McKevett
