I Forgive You

I mediated a divorce recently and it was clear that one party was so hurt about the divorce. This person knew the spouse was not well and was not pulling their weight but no matter especially since this person was the one holding it all together…right or wrong. So there was a lot of pain – inward and outward. At the end of the day, an agreement was reached that satisfied both parties but that did not help the pain and that pain was in the driver’s seat.

At that point, the only answer my friends, the only answer that can bring peace is….to forgive. I am certain this person will not feel like forgiving…will not want to…. None of that matters. You must forgive…say it…I forgive this person and I forgive myself.

Thanks, Mother Theresa…
