Excellent post, MJ!
i know forgiveness is a difficult concept - even a trigger - for many survivors. for me it was essential - and as you say, a freeing experience. i don't think i could have progressed at all without it. and it is ongoing...
Thank you for writing and sharing this.

As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
