What is it?
facing the wrong done to us
recognizing the emotions inside and allowing yourself to feel them
choosing not to hold it against the other party
Forgiveness is a process -
we often need to keep forgiving for the same hurt, sometimes on a daily basis. It's an ongoing act of your will and is essential for healing.
Forgiving someone is not condoning their actions or giving them the right to keep hurting you.
Forgiveness is about being set free from how they've hurt you.
