Forgiveness is so important. Often we hold grudges and hurts for decades. We can also hurt ourselves. Learning to forgive ourselves opens our hearts to more love and compassion, as well as inner peace. Forgiving can be internal. In relationships we can tell each other, “I forgive you.” It can take the form, “All the things I have done with my body, my words, or my thoughts that have hurt you either intentionally or unintentionally, please forgive me, for I deeply love and respect you.” The partner then says the same. This is very powerful healing.
