And be free of your pain.
As some say: "Let go and Let God."
This post has some religious content.
I've found that many of the tactics are attitudes are helpful in anyone's journey to Forgiveness and Healing.
Even if the person who hurt you never changes.
Forgiveness is not making excuses for the person who hurt you.
It is not excusing the behavior or the offense.
Forgiveness is giving your pain to a Higher Power or surrendering your feelings, and allowing something bigger than yourself to handle it. Whatever you believe your "Higher Power" to be, or however you understand it; remember you are not in the Journey to Forgiveness alone.
There are many others who deal with this pain every day, and would like to help you heal too.
We are here to help each other.
