"Forgiveness is me giving up my right to hurt you for hurting me. Forgiveness is the final act of love. Forgiveness does NOT mean you take them back or put yourself in a position where they can hurt you again.
I forgive, but I also learn a lesson. I won't hate you, but I'll never get close enough for you to hurt me again. I can't let my forgiveness become foolishness. ~Tony Gaskins Lessons Learned In Life. The truth of reality
