It is not easy to forgive — others, or ourselves for that matter. Maybe you’ve experienced the feeling of hanging on to hurt or guilt and shame. We can let ourselves rehash what happened over and over again, never letting the wound heal. Whether it’s a small grudge for something that bothers us or a deep suffering that changed our life forever — will we forgive? And what makes us forgive? This issue aims to show how the power of love and the fact that others need us and help us forget our own hurt as we reach out to them, is what can pull us beyond what seems humanly possible in order to forgive.
