It is very easy to hurt someone and say sorry. It is even easier to justify your actions. It is infact easier to do things behind people’s back even with the knowledge that once they find out they will be crushed. Easy to have the audacity to justify the BIG mistakes that you have done and blame it on another. Easy to pick on something very little and make it very big when it comes to another person without looking at your own short comings.
The bigger, better person always forgives but does he/she forget and does he/she stop hurting? Serious questions which none of us want to answer.
Life is easier to live and your conscience will be clear once you understand this verse by Bulleh Shah:
Masjid dha de, mandir dha de, dha de jo kucch dainda ,
par kisi da dil na dhanwein, Rab dilan vich rehnda..
( Tear down the Mosque, tear down the temple, tear down every thing in sight,
But don’t (tear down) break anyone’s heart.. because in the heart God resides.. )
Once you understand this verse, you would know that hurting or breaking the heart of even your worst enemy is a sin in itself.
