    It has to be possible… if it wasn’t I’d be miserable.

  2. Forgiving is, forgetting – not really.

    1. It’s so refreshing to read a comment like yours: honest and to the point. The reality is simple: no, not really. Agree!

    I like this take on forgiveness:

    Forgiveness means different things to different people. Generally, however, it involves a decision to let go of resentment and thoughts of revenge.

    The act that hurt or offended you might always be with you, but forgiveness can lessen its grip on you and help free you from the control of the person who harmed you. Forgiveness can even lead to feelings of understanding, empathy and compassion for the one who hurt you.

    Forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting or excusing the harm done to you or making up with the person who caused the harm. Forgiveness brings a kind of peace that helps you go on with life.
