What forgiveness is. What forgiveness isn't.

Share it Please

Maybe this list of what forgiveness is not, may be helpful:
·                    Forgiveness is not condoning unkindness
·                    Forgiveness is not forgetting that something painful happened.
·                    Forgiveness is not excusing poor behavior
·                    Forgiveness does not have to be an otherworldly
                          or religious experience
·                    Forgiveness is not denying or minimizing your hurt
·                    Forgiveness does not mean reconciling with the offender
·                    Forgiveness does not mean you give up having feelings.

What is forgiveness?
·                    It is a state of freedom
·                    It is relieving yourself of the burden of the past
·                    It is embracing the prospect of being a whole person again
·                    It is giving the person you forgive (even yourself) the freedom to
live in peace and the chance to also be a whole person again.

Seeing Good At Work

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
