Ran across a wonderful post on forgiveness at Actually, I’m still reading it as I post this, but wanted to link to it before I saw something shiny–perhaps you know how that goes?

The article addresses one of the issues I seem to keep encountering in myself: holding on to a perceived injury because “it’s just not right to let him/her/it get away with that” or “if I forgive this indiscretion, I’ll be a doormat”. So I keep dragging these things along behind me, some of them by big, heavy chains, while the person I’m withholding forgiveness from doesn’t know or care that I am. Yeah, that’ll show ’em.

At any rate, the linked article is insightful, helpful, and, for me, particularly timely.
