Will I be pretty enough? Do I fit in?
Forgiveness is a major topic in religious, spiritual, and self-help circles; some teachings even say that forgiveness is the only thing we need. Yet, there are so many misunderstandings around this topic, misunderstandings that stop us from forgiving and keeping us stuck in suffering. This post addresses these obstacles.
