I think this is an important clarification to make. Just because I forgive you for something that is done to me, does not mean that I am going to forget what happened. I’m going to protect myself. I’m going to take proactive measures to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.
Don’t just expect me to let my guard down. Don’t just expect to me to pretend all is good and dandy. Just because I’ve forgiven you does not mean that you’re automatically entitled to the same level of trust that you had before.
Fool me once… I’m going to take some serious precautions about the way I live my life to ensure that it’s never happening again.
