Forgiveness allows us to carry the wisdom gained from our past experiences without staying entangled in the struggle and suffering. Holding resentment, vengeance, and grudges keeps us locked in the cycle of conflict.
Forgiveness isn’t about condoning what has happened to us at the hands of another. It’s about liberating ourselves from our history so that we can move on. Trusting that while we may never fully understand why, there is value in all experience. Removing our attachments to the past through forgiveness we create a space for our healing, our growth, and our transformation. Most importantly when we forgive ourselves, we are able to embody all that we are unconditionally.
