Dealing with something that hurts is hard, but it’s even more difficult when you feel guilty about it or when you blame yourself. Especially if other people are blaming you too.
Carver in Jeff Zentner’s heartbreaking new book ‘Goodbye Days’ never thought that this would be a situation he’d ever find himself in. But it is. When he sent a text to his friend who was on his way to pick him up, he never imagined that a crash would take the lives of his three best friends, Blake, Mars and Eli, in that car.
Sometimes it takes the people you love and admire to teach you how to forgive yourself and others.

“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
