Forgiveness means “To grant free pardon and to give up all claim on account of an offense or debt”. The concept and benefits of forgiveness have been explored in religious thought, the social sciences and medicine. Forgiveness may be considered simply in terms of the person who forgives including forgiving themselves, in terms of the relationship between the forgiver and the person forgiven.
Studies show that people who forgive are happier and healthier than those who hold resentments. The first study to look at how forgiveness improves physical health discovered that when people think about forgiving an offender it leads to improved functioning in their cardiovascular and nervous systems.
Forgiveness is, first and foremost, an internal process. It is primarily for you. Forgiveness is a path to freedom. It frees one from the control of the ‘offender’.
Forgiveness can break patterns that would otherwise interfere with future relationships. Forgiving yourself and others is crucial for healing. If we can find forgiveness in our hearts for those who have caused us hurt and injury, we will rise to a higher level of self-esteem and well-being.
