Forgiveness is not about the other person

Forgiveness is not about the other person. When you forgive someone, including yourself, you're not saying that person has no responsibility for what happened. Their actions caused pain and, yes, they are responsible for that pain.

Even if they completely accept the responsibility for their actions, that doesn't take away your pain. Even if they tell you how sorry they are 100 times, that won't take away your pain.

You are the one who holds that pain and you are the one who will need to let it go. No, it's not fair, but it is true. Forgiveness is completely about you. It's about your freedom, your peace, and your future.
