if our condition for giving forgiveness is that it will be received, we seldom will forgive! Forgiving the other is first and foremost an inner movement. It is an act that removes anger, bitterness, and the desire for revenge from our hearts and helps us to reclaim our human dignity. We cannot force those we want to forgive into accepting our forgiveness. They might not be able or willing do so. They may not even know or feel that they have wounded us.
The only people we can really change are ourselves. Forgiving others is first and foremost healing our own hearts.

Oh my god ..
I loved this show and loved Raimundo.
If you want to kiss me, just do it. Make it smooth, and make it sweet. Give me hints that it’s coming—put your arms around me, brush my hair away from my face, look me in the eyes, flatter me. And I will give you hints that it’s okay (trust me, you would know if it wasn’t).
Talking about it ruins the mood and any chance at a special moment.
So instead, ask me with your actions.
Ask me with your body.
And I will answer with mine.
