Yes, if we hold on to hate, blame and resentments these negative emotions only hurt us and block our healing. Forgiveness sets us free and opens our hearts to love.

More than you can imagine! I haven’t confided this with many people, but I feel it’s important. Our son was “at fault” (please, please know I use that term only for lack of a better way to say it!) in the accident in which his little brother died. In the moments that it happened, I held and told Buddy that I didn’t blame him and that I knew it was an accident. It didn’t come out till months later in an intense counseling session, that he told us that he NEEDED to hear the words “we forgive you”. It never… Read more »

Most definitely. I know that I’ve made so mistakes in this life, and that I need forgiveness. I also know that harboring anger and bitterness only hurts me.

I do believe in forgiveness. Erica has been forgiven and lives in heaven now. Jessica protects her now just as he protects and guides me to ensure i will see her again.

Yes very much so. I had to do a lot of forgiving after Patrick was gone, because of the circumstances before he died. He was going through a Divorce he didn’t want.

Absolutely! Forgiveness frees me…and yes, it doesn’t do a thing for the one you are forgiving, but it will give you perfect peace. I think that in forgiving (which I acknowledge, can be very difficult at times), you are in fact giving the issue to God, for Him to handle as only He can. The first time I truly did this, and then saw the person I was so mad with several months later, I was amazed at the incredible feeling of peace…I could smile, wave and even speak to the individual in complete comfort – no feelings about them… Read more »

I don’t know. I forgive people, but I don’t seem to get anything forgiveness back. I guess I have to release this bad emotion I’ve had since Alex died, but I don’t know how…

I believe we must forgive, but we have to reach a point where we are really ready in our hearts. I forgave the doctor for the medical error that took my son’s life. He didn’t mean for it to happen, but it was preventable had the proper procedures been followed. Forgiving him, really forgiving him, turned out to be the best thing for me. A tremendous weight was lifted from my shoulders. It was incredibly freeing.

Absolutely! First of all, God instructs us to forgive others as He forgives us. Secondly, forgiveness here on earth is not for the other person, it’s for yourself. You have to forgive to find peace within yourself. Sometimes forgiveness is not something we think we can do, but I know from experience that it is the best thing for me. It releases the hold other people have on you that you don’t even realize. I may not ever forget some things that have happened, but I forgive the ones involved. I pray that anyone I hurt will forgive me. I… Read more »

I believe in forgiveness and forgave him for all our little fights. I’m just having trouble knowing if he forgives me for the fights and stress I caused him while he was alive. It’s a daily struggle for me. I hope he forgives me and still loves and remembers me.
