I believe in forgiveness
You can’t go around being cruel to people and never forgiving them for what they many have done.
Once you forgive someone you feel a lot better and you have gained another person to talk to and maybe one day become good friends with.
Last year I had a very close group of fiends and for some reason we all split up and stopped talking. Over the summer no one talked to each other. So I knew that when school started up again in fall, it would not be much fun and there would still be negativity with us. The first three months of school nothing changed. Then one of my friends asked what happened and no one really knew. After that day we were friends again. We forgave each other for the things we said about everyone. To this day we are all better friends then we ever were before.
This is why I believe in forgiveness.
