Welcome to the World of Forgiveness: A Guide to Understanding and Letting Go

This is the first in a series of informative articles about forgiving someone who has hurt you. It covers topics such as recognizing when it is appropriate to forgive, understanding the benefits of forgiveness, and tips on how to take the first steps towards forgiveness. It also explores the psychological and emotional consequences of not forgiving someone. The article will provide readers with a greater understanding of the importance of forgiveness, as well as practical advice on how to forgive someone who has hurt them.

Before we go further I feel it is important to define what forgiveness is and what it is not. Forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness.

For givenness is not glossing over or denning the seriousness of an offense against you. Forgiveness does not mean forgetting, nor does it mean condoning or excusing offenses. Though forgiveness can help repair a damaged relationship, it doesn’t obligate you to reconcile with the person who harmed you or release them from legal accountability.

When we forgive, we bring peace of mind to and free ourselves from corrosive anger.

True forgiveness involves letting go of deeply held negative feelings. In that way, it empowers you to recognize the pain you suffered without letting that pain define you, enabling you to heal and move on with your life.
