Forgiveness: It’s Not What You Think

We think forgiveness is a feeling. We think forgiveness means forgetting. We think forgiveness is a sign of weakness. But forgiveness is not what you think. Here are 3 truths about forgiveness. First, forgiveness is a decision to release. Instead of replaying the incident over and over in your mind, choose to not dwell on how you were wronged. Second, forgiveness is a decision to embrace. Instead of holding on to anger, embrace mercy. Put simply, mercy is not giving someone what they deserve. Third, forgiveness is a decision to pardon. When you pardon your offender by forgiving them, you are letting go of your right to punish them for the offense in the future.
