If mercy is new for me with every sunrise, then it does for everyone else, too. And if someone has hurt me? I'm able to get past it...eventually. Sure, things sneak back in and I have to do an attitude check, remind myself that we're all human.
But if you hurt someone I love? It's a whole other story, a hard story, and one that I can't fix. And I don't know how to let that go.
