Is there someone you want to forgive but just feel you can’t? Is there someone out there who you hold a grudge against? Is there someone close to you who doesn’t deserve to be forgiven in your opinion because of all the hurt they have caused you? Have a little think about the quotes I’ve sourced for you today, they may just help you see things in a different light. I do a lot of work on forgiveness with my clients and find it a very ‘freeing’ process.
