My wish is that more folks would have the drive to forgive and let love be the bridge to understanding why some folks do what they do. Most people aren't mean. They've just hurt so badly, for so long; that they are incapable of effectively communicating that pain. Each individual handles pain differently based on their personality and the type of support they've received and/or did not receive in their lifetime. It's neither right. Nor wrong.
Some have developed deep wounds, because of all the criticism and rejection they've received throughout their lives, rather than the love, understanding and compassion they've should have received; that they have created walls to keep out the pain.
Sadly... Not only do those same walls keep them bound in chains and in a tormented prison; they also keep out the blessings God is trying to give them.
And for those whom have struggled letting go of the offenses that others have inflicted upon them, (whether intentionally or not,) are left in what we have come to know as a "debtor's prison." They are trying to make others pay for a debt that they are incapable of paying. Those whom give mercy shall receive mercy.
So who amongst us will be the first to forgive the hurting; the misunderstood; the angry; the hopeless; and the rejected?
For it's only love that can build the bridge that restores relationships. And it's only forgiveness that can restore the love.
