In therapy group this week we talked about forgiveness. It is often very hard for people to forgive the pain that has been caused, but without forgiveness the process of healing cannot begin. The easiest way to invoke a genuine forgiveness is to try to understand why people do the things they do and it is often because the perpetrator of harm has not come to terms with the harm that has been caused to them. As a humanity we need to all work together to break this cycle. No easy task! But we can make a start as individuals to espouse forgiveness and understanding and thus encourage others to do the same.
