“Sometimes people tell themselves that they’ve 'forgiven' someone who hurt them because they just don’t like the negative feelings that accompany the hurt. So, they’re looking for a quick feeling fix. But genuine forgiveness is not a feeling—it’s a decision ... That kind of decision often takes time, it takes prayer, and you have to build up to it—and then do it very deliberately.” - Dr. Timothy Lock, psychologist
