    Aug 23, 2023

    Forgiveness is a constant part of our lives. Often, the hardest people to forgive are the ones closest to us - family members, friends, or loved ones. It is not wrong to feel anger or bitterness in our pain, especially if trust has been broken or we’ve been wronged. But letting anger and resentment take root is like poison to our souls. I think about forgiveness often, as an example, when something triggers an emotion, feeling, or past experience. At that moment, I have to have a heart-to-heart talk with myself. I ask, “What hinders me fro...
