No matter how old we are, forgiveness is still difficult to achieve. I am experiencing this right now. I want to forgive and I need to forgive. I don’t want to not forgive. My problem is my brain. My brain conjures up all kinds of thoughts, 99% of them didn’t even happen, but it conjures it up none-the-less. I know that anger takes a lot of energy. I am well aware. I always feel better much better when I forgive someone. I was hoping that forgiveness would come overnight. I have had many conversations with the person I want to forgive. When we are done discussing, I always feel better. I just need to remember that it will take time and understanding on both of our parts.
