The Power of Forgiveness

To pardon, to waive any negative feeling or desire for punishment;
(intransitive) To accord forgiveness.

Forgiving someone does not mean that you ignore that another person has treated you in a hurtful manner and it doesn't minimize the wrong doing or justify the action. You can forgive the person without accepting the act. Forgiveness brings a lighter energy; it brings peace to your heart and helps you move forward in your life. What techniques have you applied in your life that have allowed you to live a life of forgiveness? How has your life changed as a result of being a forgiving person? What questions do you have about forgiveness?

  1. I realized that some people who hurt others often do so intentionally because they are dealing with fear or self-esteem issues. Forgiveness is easier once you figure out why people act (or react) the way they do.

    Btw, I love the meaning of B.L.I.S.S.--I've always believed life is something special and it's gotten me through many tough times. :>)
