Can all things be forgiven?

To forgive someone – no matter how much they hurt you – is not about that person at all but about you and how you feel. Forgiving is about making peace with what happened, making peace with the other person´s hurtful action, making peace with the powerlessness you felt in that situation and making peace with your pain, your fear and your sadness.

You don’t need to talk to the person who hurt you, you don’t need to tell him that you forgive him – just gently make peace with it in your own mind. Do it for you, as a valuable step in your own healing journey.

    Wishing you the best for your healing journey! What helped me was finding out what a coward he is and that I had a talent for robbing him of his power somewhat. And I had a few guardian angels too.

      Thank you for sharing a part of your story with me. I am happy to hear you have found a way that works for you. 💐❤️

      In my case, I forgave him in my mind rather early after it happened. However, I have had terrible flashbacks every moment of every day and terrible nightmares each night the first year after it happened. So the first year after, I felt completely devastated inside and outside. Then, little by little I began to truly make peace with what he did to me. Now, 1 1/2 year after, I finally feel good again. It feels like life has finally entered my body once again. 🙏 🌹 🌹 🌹 🌹

    I totally agree. Is it worth adding mercy into the mix too?
