“Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could be any different.”

I hope you enjoyed my week-long series on forgiveness. I think I’ve said everything in my heart on the topic, so I’ll leave you with a video that really spoke to me. This was a definition I found I could work with, even through the shit storm. Cheers!

The Definition of Forgiveness

“Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could be any different. I think, for myself, and for many of you, you think forgiving means accepting what has happened to you. Well, it is accepting that is has happened, to you. Not accepting that it was OK for it to happen. It is accepting that it has happened, and now what do I do about it?”
