Two Truths of Forgiveness

Let us not allow one truth of forgiveness to obscure another of its truths.

Joy-Suffering

One truth seems to be this: When we forgive, we often suffer. We bear pain on behalf of the one who hurt us, as one example of how we suffer as we forgive.

A second truth of forgiveness is this: As we forgive, we experience joy. We see this in our scientific studies, as people shed anxiety and anger and depression and become more hopeful.

Suffering and joy—-together. Enjoy the forgiveness journey.
