Can we forgive the unforgivable?

Are we showing weakness or strength of character by forgiving?

According to a common definition, “forgiveness is the intentional and voluntary process by which a victim undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense, let go of negative emotions such as vengefulness with an ability to wish the offender well…”

After defining what our group does mean by forgiving, I propose to address some of the following questions:

- Forgiveness in religions
- Why is it so difficult to forgive?
- What may help us to forgive?
- Do we have a choice? Why could it be so important to forgive to move on?

Welcome to another great discussion! :-)
