In the definition of the word forgive, it doesn't mention what I consider the most important part of forgiveness , which is the self empowerment it gives the person doing the forgiving. Holding onto anger and resentment gives the individual, who did someone wrong, the power. Forgiving someone leads to a peace within oneself that can't be obtained while holding a grudge. Forgiving an individual has more to do with oneself then the wrong doer. When one forgives someone they move on from the past; they close the door of the past mistakes and move on to the present.
Therefore, in my opinion it is necessary to make mistakes. But the question here is that what when these mistakes made by us, though unintentionally hurt the people around us? Is it the right thing to be done then? The reason as to why it is necessary to make mistakes is that mistakes are a learning experience for us. We learn about ourselves through our mistakes and even learn how to become a better citizen for the society.
He had to switch it up a little bit but it all worked out in the end. He was determined the whole time to get the memories and feelings back so that there would be no release anymore. There would be no more secrets and no more lying. He would save the twins, the old, the mistaken, and the people who could feel more than the community has in its barriers. Jonas was never the type to give up, lets hope he doesn't give up on his community.
In Stephen Batchelor’s book, Buddhism without Beliefs: A Contemporary Guide to Awakening he goes into depth about the idea that Buddhism is not a religion or something to believe in, but rather a mindset that is a way of living with a course of action. Throughout the book he gives examples and tells stories to defend the idea that Buddhism is more than just something to believe in, but it is a way of living. Batchelor noted that when it comes to viewing Buddhism as a religion it is important to know the way Buddha viewed himself “Instead of presenting himself as a savior, he saw himself as a healer” (6). His ‘job’ was not to convert people to believe in his beliefs, rather, he wanted to show them through actions how fulfilling his way of living
Have you ever wondered what our children, and grandchildren’s lives will be like? We Screwed Up; A Letter of Apology to my Granddaughter (Ward, 2012) is a letter written by Chip Ward to his four year old granddaughter and her possible unborn siblings. He speaks clearly about the devastation that past generations have caused to the planet we all call home, although he fails to provide any evidence concerning what he claims, as well as majorly lacks appreciation for the organizations already working towards a better tomorrow. Chip Ward begins his letter with an apology to his granddaughter and her siblings for using up all of the oil. He claims that, “We are all gas-hogs, plain and simple” (Ward, 2012), in regards to his generation and those

We should remind ourselves to not make wrong choices at any moment, and not find excuses for the mistakes. And certainly we should not generously admit and accept our worst qualities because that would only make us became more and more incorrigible. Being a worse person at first, and then correcting it is not greatness and nobility. Some people are born with, and will always have integrity and pure and honest
Being at ease with a situation makes everything seem okay, and it ends up that way. With Rex and Rose Mary, I think they knew all along that everything would work out with the children and themselves. They just went with the flow, and stuck together to make sure each crisis has been resolved. Back to the quote, every situation can be terminated; it’s up to the person on how they handle
This is because, if you are to light, you will be taken advantage of and no one will ever listen to you, but on the other hand, if you are too firm, everyone will start to dislike you therefore not listen to you. It is extremely important to have the perfect balance of both firm and fair. Another point Mrs. Wallace brought up, something I have never thought about before, is using language that people under you can actually unerstand. Which basically means not to use huge words that your group will not understand, beacuse if that happens, again people will get discouraged and probably not understand what is asked of them. Leaders need to not worry so much about trying to look smart, and just use common language that everyone understands.
Sure, you can take the easy road and get nowhere or you can take the hard road and go far. There is nothing wrong with failing, as long as you know you gave it your best try and worked hard.

and I wouldn’t trade them for anything, but when I first met them? I loathed them. I was an only child so having three new siblings shoved onto me was pretty stressful, and it wasn’t until two years later that we actually started growing close. That was around the time they got married.
