Forgiveness is the first step towards healing your life and healing the relationships in your life.
Forgiveness does not condone bad behaviors or maltreatment. Forgiveness releases the negativity of the experience in need of forgiveness.
When you forgive you free yourself from being a victim. You set yourself free to live without the burden of what someone else may have done to you. Forgiveness sets you free.
Forgive and you will heal your life and heal the world.
