What’s Forgiveness?

Forgiveness means giving up all hope for a better past.  – Lily Tomlin

the past

We’re all married to the past in some fashion or another. Because of this tie to the past we consciously or otherwise are unable to forgive others or self. This is the root of most unhappiness.

let go

Love this quote because it encapsulates the main learning when it comes to the topic of forgiveness. The past is irreversible. At some point we have to consciously recognize each fixation we have about past incidents and let go. We can then be at peace!
