Forgiveness Is… Forgiveness Isn’t

Forgiveness Is…

  • An attitude of “letting go” of our judgments and attachments of how people and situations should be
  • A tool for serenity and healthy living
  • A refreshing experience of spiritual energy that clears out old pain and stress, and re-sets you in the present
  • The dissolving of a block inside you
  • A private experience that happens within you, not between you and another person

Forgiveness Isn’t…

  • Forgetting
  • Talking, reconciling, or working things out with the offender; it isn’t getting justice for the situation
  • Excusing bad behavior; saying something is OK
  • Giving up
  • Remaining a doormat for further abuse
