In my coaching, I notice that forgiveness is an issue that many people struggle with.
Forgiving someone doesn’t mean that we approve of what (we think) they have done to us. When we can’t forgive, we keep giving someone else (or our past, if we can’t forgive ourselves) power over what we think and feel. Forgiving frees us.
“Forgiveness is a tricky and confusing concept for many people but know that there’s a difference between forgiveness and acceptance. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean that you condone their behavior! The act of forgiveness takes place in your own mind. It really has nothing to do with the other person. The reality of true forgiveness lies in setting yourself free from the pain. It’s simply an act of releasing yourself from the negative energy that you’ve chosen to hold on to”.
Whom (or what) do you need to forgive?
