Forgiveness & Walking Away

Daily(ish) blogging in Lent - Day Fourteen

I learned once from a friend that forgiveness doesn’t have to mean restoring a relationship.

Forgiveness doesn’t have to mean conciliation or reconciliation. 

It could mean putting to rest animosity, resentment. "Letting go." Not letting pain control you, control me.


Forgiveness could also mean giving up a relationship, walking away, breaking away from a relationship that is unhealthy, that creates more loss than life. 

What a thing that could be to give up for Lent.
