Forgiveness is not something that has come easy to me at all throughout my life. It’s easy to hold grudges and resentments towards personal experiences we’ve gone through in our lives. It takes time and emotional growth to come to a state of mind where we can put ourselves in someone else’s shoes. I believe that admitting and accepting our part in resentments is a key factor in the process of forgiving others. I also believe that getting to know our true self and growing in sobriety can only lead to the discovery that we are able to forgive ourselves.
