Oprah Winfrey

“Forgiveness is letting go of the past we thought we wanted. Accept that it has happened to you and now what do I about it? Acceptance is accepting what has happened to you, not accepting that it was okay. Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could be any different…Letting go so that the past does not hold you prisoner, does not hold you hostage.”
