Attending a Joy of Forgiveness workshop helped me see forgiveness in a new light. Through activities and sharing I saw how much energy I was wasting if I held onto grudges and bad feelings. Forgiveness relieves not only emotional pain, but physical pains too!
The atmosphere created by Sandy at the workshop was very conducive to being comfortable talking with others. Because whatever we said was held in confidentiality, I didn’t need to hide my feelings. I knew “what was said at the workshop, stayed at the workshop.” Sandy was very encouraging in her approach to forgiveness and I felt I could trust that she had my interests at heart.
Forgiveness is not easy, but this workshop gave me insights and tools to use to get past old hurts and move on to look more positively at life.
