Only when compassion is born in your heart, is it possible to forgive.
I have to deal with my anger with care, with love, with tenderness, with nonviolence. If you cannot be compassionate to yourself, you will not be able to be compassionate to others. We cannot destroy the energy; we can only convert it into a more constructive energy. Forgiveness is a constructive energy. Anger is born from ignorance, and is a strong ally of ignorance. ~Thich Nhat Hanh
