Forgiveness is powerful.

It can be a tremendous gift.  It can relieve a tremendous burden.

It is almost always necessary for a relationship to endure.

We are human.  We make mistakes.  We let each other down.

Harboring resentment and holding on to a grudge simply erodes our ability to be the best of who we are.  Angry is no way to work or live.

I can tell you it feels good to let go.  Move forward.  Think ahead.

I can tell you it will prove to be entirely more productive.

Give it generously.  Receive it graciously.

You might just be surprised what happens next.
