Good Friday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: forgiving them means it’s done and you’ve made peace. Forgiving someone cannot be forced or demanded. It’s an inside job and that means it takes time to process what happened, feel the pain, and let go. When you forgive someone it means you put what happened in the past behind you to free yourself for the future. Forgiveness does not continue to shame, insult or harass the person who hurt you. To forgive is to overcome your past, not forgetting what happening, but no longer needing it in your life.
