I am so fucking sick of people telling me I have to forgive in order to move on/be happy

I don’t even know how to argue that statement because of how false it is.

I would like someone to show me scientific evidence that supports that statement. I say ‘scientific’ because most people who believe you have to forgive in order to be happy, also believe in a man who floats around the sky granting wishes to those who ask.

You do not have to forgive in order to be happy.

You do not have to forgive in order to be happy.

You do not have to forgive in order to be happy.


Your abusive partner doesn’t have a problem with his anger; He has a problem with your anger. One of the basic human rights he takes away from you is the right to be angry with him. No matter how badly he treats you, he believes that your voice shouldn’t rise and your blood shouldn’t boil. The privilege of rage is reserved for him alone. When your anger does jump out of you—as will happen to any abused woman from time to time—he is likely to try to jam it back down your throat as quickly as he can. Then he uses your anger against you to prove what an irrational person you are. Abuse can make you feel straitjacketed. You may develop physical or emotional reactions to swallowing your anger, such as depression, nightmares, emotional numbing, or eating and sleeping problems, which your partner may use as an excuse to belittle you further or make you feel crazy.

I truly do not believe that you need to forgive in order to move on.

And I truly do not believe that you need to move on in order to be happy.

If someone has wronged you, you are entitled to feel any emotion for however long you need. And if that’s forever, so be it. Some people do not deserve to be forgiven.


The Mormon church has stated how happy they are that people are attending Meet The Mormons, making it No. 10 in the box office.

Something they aren’t talking about is that they paid each Ward to have 15 members attend the movie opening weekend.

They also aren’t talking about the fact that certain Stakes bought out entire showings for the show, then instructed members to purchase tickets through them rather than at the theater. How do their members not see how dishonest their ‘church’ is???

California just became the first state to enact a “Yes Means Yes” law, meaning that both parties have to hear a verbal “Yes” to make sex consensual!!!
Don’t tell me you love animals and then talk about how fun going to the zoo was

why can’t everyone just leave me alone? i just want to be alone.


Faith means the purposeful suspension of critical thinking. It is nothing to be admired.

It seriously annoys me when anyone my age doesn’t know what’s going on in the world. Get your heads out of your asses and watch the news every once in a while. How can you be a change for ANYTHING if you don’t even have an idea as to what the major events going on are in the world are?
