Short question: Do you think forgiveness entails prosociality towards the forgiven person, or just a return back to “normal.” Or as normal as it was?
Forgiveness is not the same thing as absolution. A person you’ve forgiven isn’t free from the consequences of their behavior just because you’ve let go of your anger and resentment.
It’s a wonderful thing to forgive, but it doesn’t obligate you to give yourself over to someone who might bring chaos into your life.

The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.
The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world.
This is literally the craziest fucking thing I have ever seen.
Random and bizarre.
Can you buy nothing for 24 hours?
Put more fear in in corporate American then ANY protest will EVER do!

YEAH GUYZ THIS IS A GREAT IDEA!
lET’S MAKE SURE THOSE MINIMUM WAGE SEASONAL EMPLOYEES GET LAID OFF WAY BEFORE THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO SO THEY CANNOT PAY FOR CHRISTMAS GIFTS, RENT, OR EVEN FOOD TO FEED THEIR KIDS.
OH MAN, AND ON TOP OF THAT, THE MANAGERS WILL GET IN SHIT, BEING QUESTIONED WHY THEIR SALES WERE SO LOW SUDDENLY.

GENIUS FUCKING PLAN!!!!!!!!
^^^^^^^^^this is what the fuck i’m saying!! people who don’t work retail do not understand how it works… one bad holiday weekend can literally close a store that might not be doing great. i know because it happened to one of mine. and if corporate decides to close an under performing store, GUESS WHO GETS MORE MONEY! if you need more shit, buy it. by boycotting, you are hurting the wrong people.
