    Forgiveness

    Forgiveness is not ignoring, disregarding, tolerating, excusing, overlooking, or closing one's eyes to the sin of another person. It is not simply letting time pass after the offense has been committed and then "getting over it." It is not resigning one's self to the other person...

    But Not All

    There are some people who have hut me that I have a hard time forgiving. Mostly because they refuse to change. How can someone be in therapy for so long and make no progress? I try, but I am frustrated by it.

    Time Heals

    It has taken me some time to forgive, but I see no point in not. For years I noticed that I was hurting myself by not forgiving. I can't say that it has brought me complete inner peace but I'm slowly getting there.
