I will forgive you
The words are so small
But there is a universe hidden in them
When I forgive you
All those cords of resentment, pain, and sadness that had wrapped themselves around my heart will be gone
When I forgive you
You will no longer define me
You measured me and assessed me and decided you could hurt me
I didn’t count
But I will forgive you
Because I do count
I do matter
I am bigger than the image you have of me
I am stronger
I am more beautiful
And I am infinitely more precious than you thought me
I will forgive you
My forgiveness is not a gift I am giving you
When I forgive you
My forgiveness will be a gift that gives itself to me

From “The Book of Forgiving” by Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu
