Forgiveness

Forgiveness is not excusing, denying, defending, changing, rewriting, or forgetting a hurtful action or behavior, but rather a choice to release my heart from anger directed at an individual or group. The most wonderful and freeing thing about forgiveness is that it is not dependent upon the repentance of another – only upon the repentance of me. Forgiveness is never about “you, him, her, or them” – it’s only about “us or me”.
