Unforgivable words that can’t be taken back. Whether in life, print or virtual space, people can say the most dramatic hurtful words in the unedited English dictionary. Descriptive words that are then put into action. It doesn’t matter how much time passes and if tempers are cooled, the words were said and can never be erased from memory. No matter how much forgiveness is asked in prayer, forgiveness should be asked of the person the words were told too, if at all possible. However, in print, fictional and non fictional, forgiveness is hardly ever asked from the person(s) in question. Life goes on…
Words that can’t be taken back usually cause a rift in the fabric that holds family and friends together. Prayer and time are not the keys to sooth or patch up the rift. The unforgivable words were not said with God in mind or “let’s take time to sort this out”, they were said point of fact-in anger. In anger, that etched a heated fiery picture in memory. A piece of memory that never really fades.
If there’s a chance to ask foregiviness to the person or persons at the current time, ask now. Passed time is just past time. Silence is not the way to keep the peace. Forgiviness is God, an apology is human. Be human and make peace to sew the rift in the fabric of life. Unforgivable words can be explained.
