/fərˈɡivnəs/
noun
the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven.

There’s this girl.
I don’t know her name.
I don’t know her.
Not anymore.

She always find it easy to forgive people, she said that they have reasons for doing things–for committing mistakes. She believe that understanding others is a must, for we are living in a world of brokenness. We simply have no idea what someone else is going through for you to be an add up to their baggages.

We’re living in a world where people are so afraid–of failures, of being wrong and of being ‘just’. We’re living in a world full of pressures, of ‘you must’–you must be like this, you must be like that, you must do this, you must do that–just for passing the society’s standards. We’re living in a world where we limit ourselves. In a world where we thought failing has no place.

The result? We tend to be perfectionist. And by wanting everything to be perfect, we end up ruining it. We end up asking; “Where did I go wrong?”. We end up being disappointed. We end up blaming ourselves–for not being good enough, for not being what everyone’s expecting us to be, for failing, for messing things up, for not being pretty good, for being dumb, for being ‘just’–’just’ this. Then we mistakenly identified challenge as competition. We forgot the concept of learning. We forgot the good, even the better cause we’re only aiming for the best.

Oh dear, everything will stop being fun when you’re just doing it to be the best, when you already forgot the truest meaning of being real.
Stop asking for their approvals.
It’s time for you to not just forgive others.
It’s time for you to forgive your irreparably broken soul.

Can’t you hear her? She’s asking for your forgiveness but you keep on pushing her away.

Stop questioning your existence.
Give yourself a chance.
Forgive yourself.
You of all people, know what it’s like not to be forgiven.
It might be the hardest thing to do, but you have to, you need to.

When will you give yourself the forgiveness you easily give?

There’s this girl.
I don’t know her name.
I don’t know her.
Not anymore.

But there’s one thing I want to ask her;

When?
