I needed to hear this again today.
So much baggage most of us carry in the word “forgiveness.”
Ultimately… forgiveness is a gift you give yourself. It’s acceptance. And it’s moving forward.
I don’t really use the word forgiveness much anymore… because it’s been so polarized and cheapened… and even used to retraumatize and justify toxic or nonexistent boundaries. But I love the concepts shared here.
This one important person in Oprah Winfrey's life wanted nothing to do with her until she was famous. Years later, Oprah is forced to confront her.
