Forgiveness, Part 4

This morning, Anna Stookey joined me on Your Caregiving Journey to talk about what forgiveness means to her and to share her story of forgiveness. You can listen to our show via the player at the bottom of the post.

Anna suggested that we gain a better understanding of forgiveness by breaking the word down: The core of forgiveness is give. In forgiving, we give back the wrong rather than taking it on.

Anna shared her forgiveness story about 25 minutes in to the show—you’ll want to make sure to listen. Her story shows us that the best way to disengage is really to engage.

I’d love know: What are enjoying so far about our forgiveness series? And, have you gained any new insights?

Update: We’re at 20% of our goal for Kristin, this month’s CareGifters recipient. It’s easy to give—just donate $5 and you’ll help us reach our goal of giving $500 to Kristin. You can read more and donate here.

Wow! This was a wonderful show. Thank you.

What continues to show itself to me with this series, is that in forgiving, we can receive so much in return…we become better and stronger. We are given the opportunity to know ourselves in a different way.

In not forgiving, we lose, and jeopardize dragging “it all” with us for a very long time.

This is a wonderful series. Thank you!
