"We must find the freedom to step over our wounds and the courage to forgive those who have wounded us. The real danger is to get stuck in anger and resentment. Then we start living as ‘the wounded one,’ always complaining that life isn’t ‘fair.’

Jesus came to save us from these self-destructive complaints. He says: ‘Let go of your complaints, forgive those who loved you poorly, step over your feelings of being rejected, and have the courage to trust that you won’t fall into an abyss of nothingness but into the safe embrace of a God whose love will heal all your wounds.'"

— Henri Nouwen: Here and Now: Living in the Spirit, 57-58
