Offended parties often become prisoners of their own angst. Forgiving and letting go can free them.

I have decided to take ArchBishop Tutu’s Forgiveness Challenge photo contest, and do a few spiritual push-ups.

The act of forgiveness is often about clearing resentments from the past, perceived and real. That means wiping the ledger, and offering people a second chance.

Sometimes you have to cut ties and say good-bye to people. And sometimes it really sucks.
