Should you forgive him? Should you forgive her?
Here is a helpful tool to motivate you to forgive – even something you presently feel might be unforgivable.
Firstly, you must recognize that forgiveness is a process.
It’s not about viewing what they did as less harmful than it truly was.
And it’s not about giving your offender a free pass to keep on doing wrongful actions against you.
Forgiveness is about recognizing that staying resentful creates an “active echo” of the pain your offender caused.
By saying that the awful offense your offender did is “beyond forgiving,” you give them the power to keep their offense alive in your heart.
Forgiveness begins with the mind recognizing that there’s a truthful logic in how the past cannot be changed, but happily the present and future can be.
Eventually forgiveness progresses to the heart – with the heart deciding it will no longer allow the offender’s pain to take permanent residence.
Eventually the mind and heart can together recognize that the choice to forgive is both logical and spiritually liberating!
