The Power of Forgiveness

Updated: 7 days ago

The word "forgiveness" is generally defined by phycologists as a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they deserve your forgiveness.

It is equally important to become aware and recognize what "forgiveness" is not.

Many subject matter experts have clarified that forgiving does not mean that the seriousness of an offense against you is being denied or shoved under a rug. Most certainly, forgiveness does not mean forgetting, nor does it mean condoning or excusing offenses. In other words, although forgiveness plays a significant role in rebuilding relationships, there is no obligation attached to reconcile with the offender.
