People often get caught up in the idea that forgiveness is a free pass for a person to get away with it (whatever it is). Getting caught up in the idea that the other person did not apologize does not help you heal.  With my free workshop starting on Monday (so excited). I thought I would share some amazing quotes on forgiveness and how to helps the person forgiving with or without an apology.


Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. Marianne Williamson Read

  1. Wow, this is an amazing post. It's so hard to sometimes remember that there is a difference between forgiving someone and giving them a "free pass to hurt". Love these quotes and the intention behind them. Thank you so much for writing this post.

    1. Try not trying to forget you should remember who has hurt you. Just try not to let it effect how you feel. LOL I hope you got that.

  4. Love this! I've always had a hard time forgiving people. I grew up with a large birthmark covering the left side of my face, I was always made fun of and stared at. I just a year ago decided to forgive everyone and not care anymore and it changed my life. These quotes really hit home. Great post

  5. This is a great post! I have an easy time forgiving my husband, friends, etc., but struggle forgiving those who have really done me wrong. I harbor resentment and anger for a long time and it feels good to finally let go.

  6. Forgiveness is something that is very important to me, it is also something that I struggle with and continually have to work on. Often times I think I have forgiven only to have feels of resentment pop up in the future.

    1. I think that is the hardest part of forgiving. It takes work but you'll get there knowing those feelings and not letting them control is a step in the right direction.
