Description of Challenge
“ We can not start reading the next chapter of our life, if we keep rereading the last
How can we move to a place from which we can let go what has occurred in our past,
find a new place we can relate in a healthy way with our memories and move to place
of inner freedom.
“With each act of forgiveness, whether small or great, we move toward wholeness”
The ability to achieve forgiveness and let go of past hurts is one of the most critical
challenges many of us face on the road to attaining personal peace and inner balance.
Forgiveness can be defined as the decision to let go of resentment, anger, and
thoughts of revenge as a result of a real, or perceived offense, hurt, or wrongdoing
Forgiving someone does not mean denying a person’s responsibility for hurting you,
nor does it mean minimizing, or justifying the act. It does mean willing to forgive
someone without condoning or excusing what they did, and then letting it go.
Most world religions include teachings on the nature of forgiveness, and many of these
teachings provide an underlying basis for many varying modern day traditions and
practices of forgiveness.
