"Forgiveness is not about forgetting. It is about letting go of another person's throat.....Forgiveness does not create a relationship. Unless people speak the truth about what they have done and change their mind and behavior, a relationship of trust is not possible. When you forgive someone you certainly release them from judgment, but without true change, no real relationship can be established.....Forgiveness in no way requires that you trust the one you forgive. Forgiveness does not excuse anything...Forgiveness is not something we do for others, we do it for ourselves, to get well and move on."
-W.M. Paul Young
