What forgiveness is NOT:
Forgiveness is NOT saying that what that person did to you, or what you did was okay or even alright. Some of you have suffered harm at the hands of others and it’s NOT OKAY. It is what was, but it doesn’t mean it’s okay or alright.
Forgiveness is NOT giving permission for that person to do that again to you; it’s not meaning that we must become a ‘doormat’ and let people walk all over us; We can set healthy and appropriate relational boundaries.
-It is possible to forgive an offense that would be impossible to forget.
It isn't necessary to forget when we forgive.
