Why is forgiveness seen as a weakness?
It demands great strength and self-control to forgive – something that is hugely undervalued in today’s society. Demonstrating forgiveness is not an act of forgetting. In fact it is an act of remembrance. The world is a complex place, and at times we all get things wrong and make mistakes. We are often harsh on others even though we have committed similar crimes ourselves. Sometimes it can be hard to remember that.
