Once when talking about forgiveness, Oprah Winfrey said, “Forgiveness is giving up the hope that the past could have been any different, it’s accepting the past for what it was, and using this moment and this time to help yourself move forward.” The willingness to forgive is often rooted in our right thinking. Thinking is the gateway to emotion and emotion is the gateway to action. Other people or maybe even adverse  circumstances may have been at the root of your pain, but we are the ones who control whether we allow that pain to go on. You can get beyond the pain if you decide to move on. You don’t have to be held captive by what was done to you in the past and you don’t have to feel compelled to punish them or get even in order to get better. How many times should you forgive? Until you are completely over it!
