Sometimes, you just need to let it go and forgive

They’re human, they’re people, just like us sinners; why get angry and quarrel?

– Leo Tolstoy

Sometimes, people let you down. They disappoint you, make you feel disrespected, not wanted or appreciated, and leave you wondering why all your kindness is taken advantage of. Used, and forgotten. 

It hurts. It makes you mad. It makes you want to be cruel and get back at them, show them how it feels.

“There. See how you like it!”

It’s unfair. You’re left alone when someone should be there caring for you. They should be there when you need them; the way you were there for them.

But, people are human. Sometimes what you want doesn’t get factored in, even if it should. Sometimes, people will be selfish and put themselves first, even if the right thing to do would be to think of and care about you instead.

Forgive them. They don’t mean it. Perhaps they don’t realise how much you need them. Perhaps they are in their own pain and can’t see through it to feel yours. Perhaps things are going so well for them that they are high off the joy and are too distracted to notice that you’re upset.

What’s the point in quarrelling? You will make the same errors too.

They’re human, they’re people, just like us sinners; why get angry and quarrel?
