Some people will never forgive you because doing so means admitting that they are part of the problem.
Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.
Colossians 3:13 (NLT)
Yes, there is such a thing as shadow boxing.
But for a real fight to take place, at least two people must be involved. And in the end, no one wins; everyone is a loser.
It is better to forgive as we have been forgiven for Jesus’ sake.
