I often find that the person we need to forgive, doesn’t know why he/she needs forgiving. Self-forgiveness also falls into that category. That lack of acknowledgement on the recipient of our forgiveness often destroys the act of forgiveness or creates a new cycle. That is because we often go into the act of forgiveness believing we are forgiving for the sake of the other. That is the wrong approach – forgiveness is a self-benefit. It not only quiets the soul; but it also calms the spirit and brings comfort to the physical.

As we progress during the Easter season we are reminded to forgive all in our life who have wronged us, especially ourselves. We do so to make ourselves healthier in mind, spirit, and body, not the other way around.
