All you have to do
Is just open your arms and legs at the same time
And close your legs and arms at the same time
To the beat

I had this playing on my speaker while I was in my local Sainsbury's a few days ago. The African security guy walked past and asked are you listening to Fela Kuti? The following conversation went on for about 30minutes. The conversation was concluded about forgiveness. I've gone through hell in the last few weeks and this security guard told me that you have to forgive people, even if they have harmed you and you did nothing to deserve it. Thanks Fela Kuti and to the security guard

NEVER FORGIVE SOMEONE WHO HAS NOT REPAIRED WITH JUSTICE.

Literally everywhere I turn I am preached some message about forgiveness or letting go of resentment. Now I see it in the comments - and so it is.
