Forgiveness isn’t easy but it is so worth the effort. Author Maya Angelou said, “it’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody.” Forgiving others who have wronged you intentionally or unintentionally allows you to put the past in the past and move forward without the personal burden of hatred and revenge.
Forgiveness is not about exonerating a perpetrator; forgiveness frees the victim. But forgiveness does not include giving people free access to your life. You can forgive and have boundaries that keep you safe in the future. We’ll talk all about it in this episode of the podcast.
I remember how hard and lonely my journey was through grief after a divorce, after my brother died and then after my kids died. I had to scratch and claw my way through, not understanding what I was doing or if I would ever make it out of the excruciating pain of grief.
Because I felt so alone and I was without a guide, I wanted to give up over and over and over again. It’s why I show up here because I want to share what I learned in the process of clawing my way through and save you the added burden of having to figure it out all by yourself.
