First of all, I think we need to have a definition of forgiveness. Forgiveness is when you give up your right to punish someone for what they have done to you.People ordinarily think that forgiveness is for those who are worthy of it, who deserve it. I honestly do not agree with this opinion. Forgiveness is an attitude of love and understanding.
