Candid chat about how forgiveness differs from trust, finding your own peace when forgiveness from others is not forthcoming or possible, forgiving ourselves, letting go of being offended in the first place so there’s no need to forgive, and so much more, including a little Maya Angelou wisdom!
Questions answered in this podcast:
Joanna – “In many cases you will never get it (forgiveness), so you have to learn to make your own peace” – we discuss the many situations where it is impossible to receive forgiveness from a person because they are no longer present in your life.
Pam – “It is when I’m trying hard to forgive but I can’t completely forget. When someone’s done something wrong towards me and asked for forgiveness, I can forgive but I don’t find it easy to trust that person again. Sometimes I’m not sure if I should trust the person again.”
Annys – “I feel that my experience so far re forgiveness has been that the more I understand about people’s experience, the more forgiveness seems irrelevant. Comments please?”
