Forgive Me


Forgive 3Before I began my Recovery from addiction I was so afraid to forgive others and myself because I thought I must remember the wrongs they did to me and I did to myself.  And if I did not remember them I would not profit or learn from them in someway.

But in Recovery I have discovered that the opposite is true. Today I find that in forgiveness, the wrong is released from its emotional and psychological stranglehold on me and I can indeed learn and grow from it.

Recovery has also taught me that through strength and compassion of the heart, the release of forgiveness brings expanded intelligence to work with others and myself more humanely.

And so forgiveness, like acceptance, is indeed the release of all hope for a better past.
