We have be taught, or conditioned, that Forgiveness means letting the other person off the hook for what they did.
No wonder we choose not to Forgive.
Yet, the person that suffers the most is the one that refuses to Forgive.
Withholding Forgiveness feeds Resentment, Pain, Guilt, Stress and many other maladies and cannot be Healthy for our physical body either.
Consider a new definition for Forgiveness.
Remember, Resentment means taking the poison and expecting the other to die.
To Forgive means that you Release your Resentment while not condoning the behavior of the other.
It’s as simple as that.
