“You never know the reasons behind why a person behaves a certain way. Even if they hurt someone else or do something you can’t understand, then they will have had a reason. You don’t have to forgive them but you may feel lighter in yourself if you do. But sometimes it is too much to forgive.”
Molly Aitken, The Island Child
