Life has taught me that despite my promises and best efforts, I will continue to make mistakes. Thus I am constantly in need of forgiveness. If this is my starting point, whether it is due to compassion, empathy or fairness, I will forgive others their failings. So, forgiveness is a two-way street, which acknowledges our human weakness. This insight makes life simpler and more peaceful as I am not wasting energy by nursing grudges.
Because they are finding their place in the world, young people can ‘rub up’ against others, creating friction. By sharing the simple and powerful insight of the innate failings of each of us, that can help young people glimpse a more compassionate life – for themselves and others.
Have a great week!
