What Forgiveness is About

“When I hold onto resentments and blame, I occupy my spirit with bitterness.” – Courage to Change, page 75

The entire reading from this page (attached) is one of the truly great readings from this book, on a subject that I can never get enough of: forgiveness. It talks about one of the main (and faulty) reasons why I have always forgiven others, while explaining that foreguveness really is just a way to remind me that I’m equal to (no better than, no worse than) everyone else. My job is not to judge others, or to be their victim, but rather to think and act in a way that reflects the best me I can be. Because when I do that, ILML!
