People are not their deeds

Learn to separate people from their actions.

If you do this, you’ll find it easier to forgive when others hurt you. For someone out there, it might be a parent, former spouse or former colleague that hurt you really bad, forgive him or her.

I am not saying that you need to find your way back into that person’s orbit and be lovey-dovey with him or her, no. But you need to release them from their deeds because people are not their deeds. If they knew better, they’d have done better.
