For the first time in my life I have experienced true forgiveness. I have forgiven a guy who used to be a very close friend. He did something terrible, I didnâ€™t want to talk to him. I started to just treat him like I normally would..but I felt awful inside. Then he made a comment and I snapped at him. That was a few weeks ago. I see him at school, at lunch, when Iâ€™m around my other friends. I just smile and act the same except Iâ€™m trying to be friendly or saying much to him. Iâ€™m treating him with respect but Iâ€™m not treating him as a friend. Iâ€™m not telling him my secrets, ranting on about things or asking his opinion. I donâ€™t trust him, Iâ€™m not friends with him but I respect him. I finally understand what true forgiveness feels like.
