For·give·ness – /ˌfərˈɡivnəs/ noun – the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven. Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future – Paul Boese.

 “Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different, it’s accepting the past for what it was, and using this moment and this time to help yourself move forward.” Oprah. 

It is not an action or an attitude, it is a process, that takes time. Are you willing to forgive? When you forgive you take back your power. It’s not about forgetting what happened, it’s about you and your life and your sanity. It is an action, not a feeling. When you can’t forgive, who is the one who stays imprisoned? Who is the one that cannot move forward? 

Words and thoughts to consider when you are stuck.
