Holding On

I'm climbing the stairs to the apartment, weary, thinking about my past like you do, when I suddenly realize I'm not a very forgiving person.

I'm pretty laid-back, sure, and I don't usually get too uptight about things, but what I really mean is that the people I've "forgiven" didn't really hurt me.

The people who have hurt me in my life, and it's a pretty short list, are still on my list, unforgiven, a sore spot every time I think of them, which is pretty hypocritical, considering how many people I've hurt in my life who I sort of just expected to forgive me.

Not only have I not forgiven the people on my list, but I'm not entirely sure I know how to forgive them.
