My ex and I broke up on bad terms and it was really painful. Some of the things that were said left emotional scars. After a year, he has texted me and apologized and asked for nothing but forgiveness. I am a religious woman and feel like in order to move on, I have to forgive him, but at the same time I am weary as to if this is a trick or not. I don't want him back and won't take him back, but should I accept his apology in order to heal? If so what should I say to make sure that he knows that I forgive him but that is it?
