Forgiving others for the deep wounds they have caused in our lives is something that takes time to grow into. But recall that we are beings in time - we exist in and through past, present, and future. Thus, we should not expect instantaneous resolutions. God is patient with us, so let’s be patient with ourselves. Forgiving, then, may be a long process and hopefully it will be one that we are challenged to take more seriously as each day goes by.
