This is a hard post to write. As I myself struggle to forgive my abuser for what he did. Somedays I can’t bring myself to do it. But I know as part of the healing process I need to let go of this poison. Jesus said to Peter ” you must forgive seven times seventy.”. This is hard and somedays I just say to myself I want to, want to forgive.
Forgiveness for survivors is really hard as we have to endure the pain and shame. I ask a question can I forgive him for what happened. The answer is I don’t know. Maybe in time.
