Forgiveness (1)

Anyone can hold a grudge, but it takes a person with character to forgive. When you forgive, you release yourself from a painful burden. Forgiveness doesn't mean what happened was OK, and it doesn't mean that person should still be welcome in your life. It just means you have made peace with the pain, and are ready to let it go.

  1. This is sooo true, most of the time the person for which you are needing to forgive does not even realize they need to be forgiven, they have moved on with thier lives and your stuck in the throws of ugly bitterness. I have had a drastic life altering last few months, I still cant say if I will get through it,but Im doing my best and there has beeb a lot of anger and hurt that I have managed to get passed me, some things/people im still struggling with but I have faith, faith in myself, faith in my children, faith in prayer, lots and lots of prayer, and your website is one of a few that has helped me forge through this pain and my battles to fight and live. Thank You!

    1. Dear Shellie, You are such a strong person and definitely on the track to wellness and wholeness. A lot of people think Forgiveness is just something they cannot do, and end up carrying around bitterness for their whole lives, and pass it down to their children. It becomes the hurt that never heals. Forgiveness is a process, and sometimes to be complete, it can take years. There are extra good days and extra bad days, but overall, each day you work on it is a day closer to being completely free. Thank you so much for writing. You inspire me. Love, Doe
