Forgive Your Foe Friday - Be Kind To Humankind Week

Years ago Oprah Winfrey told a story about a woman who had done her a great unkindness which had a negative impact on her career. Oprah said that she let the situation vex her and would be filled with anger anytime the memory passed through her awareness. Sometime later, Oprah saw the woman on a Chicago street laughing with a friend going into an expensive jewelry store. She had a flash of insight when she realized that the woman had moved on with her life, while she was still carrying around heavy baggage of resentment and grief.


Oprah went on to explain that in that moment, she learned that forgiveness is really for the offended, NOT the offender. Reflecting on potential lessons, setting boundaries, and then releasing resentment through forgiveness, frees to move forward.
