Today on instagram I asked what forgiveness means to you. Here are some of the responses!
"Releasing attachment to the pain." -@r.pictorial
"Forgiveness lets us see the beauty of oneself again." -@i_liveinthismoment.h
"Inner peace." -@ chela2001
"To me, forgiveness is releasing the story that plays on repeat in my head; detaching myself from it, recognizing the lesson(s) and simply saying, with a smile on my face and grace in my heart - 'It's ok. I'm ok.'" - @Velibor_cakic
For me, it is something that must not be rushed. It also doesn't mean that saying what happened is okay. Forgiveness for me is releasing attachment to the suffering and allowing light to enter my heart once again. What does forgiveness mean to you? Reply in the comments below :)
