HOW TO FORGIVE
Do you have info to share with HuffPost reporters? Here’s how.
Being able to forgive someone for something they did or said takes work and constitutes PURE BRAVERY in its truest form. It takes commitment and evolves in phases from anger to sadness, perhaps idling between the two for some time, culminating in the eventual recognition that you will be much lighter if in fact you can forgive.
In this way those of us who bump up against the challenge of all-out forgiveness could learn to let go while leaving those proponents of pain mentally behind. And maybe then we can forget, and, therefore, forgive; not exactly a proof-back guarantee that a future generation will escape the memories of trauma, but close.
