Throughout my life, people have given me many opportunities to practice forgiveness. From minor situations to major ones with varying results.
Looking back on my life I see that I had no idea what forgiveness was and what I thought it was stopped me from truly forgiving them or myself for that matter!
What I really wanted was to hurt them like they hurt me and in the process of that I found it hurt me even more!
Like so many people I’ve talked to about this topic, I was taught “to forgive is to forget” and that didn’t feel right to me. I couldn’t forget, no matter how hard I tried, and I certainly didn’t want them to forget either!
It wasn’t until I was ready to see forgiveness differently, could I finally the find the peace I wanted. Turns out that forgiveness is the best revenge! I am so grateful for the gifts I have received on this journey and I’m excited to share them with you!
