Forgiveness   

Forgiveness is the conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment toward someone or something that has harmed you, regardless of whether they deserve it. This is a personal decision to let go of negative emotions which then enables us to move forward and leave that past behind. Forgiveness is not forgetting nor does it deny the seriousness of an offense, but it brings us peace of mind and freedom to enjoy the today. Forgiving can lead to healthier relationships and greater spiritual and psychological well-being.
