    When I practice forgiving people, it makes me feel better. Of course it takes a great deal of effort but I benefit in the long run. There is a sign in my therapist's office that says "Feelings of Resentment means to poison yourself and hope that it kills somebody else." So, as you see, UNforgiveness only hurts yourself.

    Forgiveness is an act we do for ourselves...once I thought that there were things that were 'unforgiveable', but I have found that this was an act of revictimization which did not allow ME off the hook...big hugs, J
