Finding Forgiveness

Betrayed spouses often struggle with finding a spirit of forgiveness after learning
of their spouse's infidelity. Understanding the accurate definition of forgiveness
aids in facilitating the often, counterintuitive process of forgiveness. Many 
distortions are associated with forgiveness and act as obstacles to developing a forgiving spirit. Forgiveness is a process in which a person chooses to let go of any anger, bitterness, or desire for retribution after experiencing an offense committed by another.

Facts about forgiveness:
  • Forgiveness does not mean forgetting.
  • Forgiveness does not always require reconciliation or continuation of a relationship.
  • Forgiveness does not condone or support the offense itself.
  • Forgiveness does not imply weakness, but rather suggests maturity.
  • Forgiveness is necessary for personal healing.
  • Forgiveness is not contingent upon an apology or repentance.
  • No offenses are exempt from forgiveness.
