Paper About Forgiveness
RE AssignmentAnthony.Pulling
PART 1
The concept of forgiveness is a very important forgiveness, without it the world would be a very very different place.Forgiveness is the action or
process of being forgiven, or to be forgiven. Forgiveness has been displayed in the article because Kaine Barnett carelessly drove his car into the
emergency stopping lane on the Hume Highway killing Sarah Frazer and Geoffry Clarke the tow truck helping her.
The father of Sarah Frazer feels very sorry for Kaine he said in court " we don't want Kaine to be in prison for the next 18 months to 3 years. Kaine
could have been my son. Any of this could of happened to any of our families. We don't hate him. We feel so sorry that he has to go through this. The

The catholic sacrament of forgiveness is very important because no one is perfect ever since Adam and Eve were tempted by the devil to eat the apple
from the garden of Eden no human being was perfect (Except for Mary). Imagine today's society without forgiveness and how many sins would be left
unforgiven.
Jesus Christ himself displayed a mind blowing level of forgiveness when he was being nailed to the cross. "...33When they came to the place called
The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left. 34But Jesus was saying, "Father, forgive them; for
they do not know what they are doing." And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves. 35And the people stood by, looking on. And
even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One."..." Luke 23:24
(BibleHub.com)
In the article it is clearly stated that Kaine has remorse for his actions "One factor is Kaine's remorse. It is harder to hate someone when they already
hate themselves. Since causing the two deaths, Kaine has suffered post–traumatic stress disorder with its associated depression, anxiety, flashbacks,
sleeplessness and suicidal thoughts. " (The Age

College Essay On Forgiveness
What do you want to pass down to your children? From the beginning of time having a family was important. Astonishingly, to have children and
pass the family name down is still a blessing today. Teaching the future generation traits and qualities is essentially creating tomorrow's leaders. This
question makes me consider how one simple act can mold people's lives and accordingly create a chain reaction. One trait I aspire for my children to
inherit is my quality of forgiveness. Forgiveness changed my perspective in the world by understanding how much of an impression it has on the
world's faith, perseverance, and love. Our God forgives our daily sins for he knows that we are imperfect. Yearningly, I hope my children to imitate this
Godly quality and "forgive one another freely", thus building strength in their faith in their relationships, whether it is with God, their spouse, or their
friends. All of my relationships are present today due to forgiveness. Optimistically, I wait to teach my children to resemble forgiveness so they will
cultivate strength and be unmovable with their faith. When people witness my future offspring and I demonstrate these acts of forgiveness, kindness
will continue and flourish in the family, community, and hopefully the world....show more content...
People devote years trying to obtain revenge for something that happened in the past. In turn, perseverance means to accomplish something without

future. In order to achieve colossal works in life we must forgive so we can accomplish massive goals. Let people understand the potential of

Forgiveness : A Mental Health Perspective Essay
From a mental health perspective, in order to be able to forgive others one must have self–forgiveness. When a person feels like they have been
"forgiven by God predicted a greater tendency to forgive others unconditionally" (Bassett,Carrier,Charleson,Pak,Schwingel et.al, 2016 para. 13).
Forgiveness is now being researched and explored in many different fields of study such including mental health, politics, criminal justice and
even business classes and forgiveness will continue to be topic of new studies because of the ways that it can affect one's life. Looking at
forgiveness from a psychological standpoint and being able to give forgiveness can at times be difficult on a person's mental health, yet most if
not all of the studies relate back to a biblical worldview. There was a study/research trial that took place and probably is still being done so today, it
is called The Stanford Forgiveness Project where they gather people to participate who have unresolved conflicts in their lives and provide a weekly
session where they can talk about the conflict and why is seems to be unresolved. They talk about such things as being able not hold in the anger or
harbor resentments against others, that one should not have pity parties where they are only thinking about themselves or continually portray
themselves as a victim, or that the conflict only affected them, focus on what is ahead as the past is already done and one cannot go back and redo it
rather one should accept it,

Forgiveness Essay
Forgiveness Jesus forgave many sinners throughout his ministry, but many people were upset at his actions e.g. when Jesus healed a paralysed
man. In Palestine it was the general belief that sickness was caused by sin. When Jesus saw how much faith the man had he forgave all of his sins,
and the man was able to pick up his mat and walk home. Jesus believed that he could heal physically and spiritually, but the Pharisees were
extremely upset because they thought Jesus was blaspheming as only God could forgive sins. No work was to be done on the Sabbath. When Jesus
healed a crippled woman on this day the synagogue leaders were very angry with him for...show more content...
He had kept to the house rules, by doing what his father wanted and therefore he expected a reward for doing so. In the same way the Pharisees
thought that by carrying out their specific practices and keeping their rules, they were the only people who deserved heaven. As we all know,
forgiving people today causes great difficulties within our local society and on a worldly scale. On September 11 2001 there were major terrorist
attacks in New York by the al–Qaeda group. The American President, George W Bush, reacted to this by declaring a war against all terrorists. There
was great debate on how to react to such a horrific event and no one is certain whether war was the right decision to make. Although the terrorist
attacks were great atrocities, with many losing their lives and others injured, personally I don't think that declaring a war was a very responsible
action. Whilst America was at war, hurt and bloodshed increased and although it helped with a few problems a lot more were uncovered. Old
Testament laws suggest that you should seek revenge for how you were wronged – "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth". In the New Testament
though, Jesus encourages us to "turn the other cheek", suggesting that if we are sinned against, it is better to forgive

What Is Forgiveness Essay
As Jean Paul Sartre once said, "Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you." Freedom is the state of being free and at liberty rather than in
confinement. When someone we care about does us wrong, we often hold resentment, anger and thoughts of revenge, but there is another solution;
forgive and move forward. Forgiveness is a freeing experience. Forgiveness is not a feeling, not pretending that it didn't hurt or not saying what the
person did was okay, on the contrary it is about peace and reconciliation. A question that most people don't ask is "What is forgiveness?" What are we
forgiving when we say, "I accept your apology." Forgiveness is the only way a person can be fair to him or her self. It is the only way to get free of

Forgiveness takes patience, willingness, and practice. Don't expect someone to forgive one day to the next because people's mind change when
they are reluctant about choices. Don't get discouraged when weakness is present and want to retreat back. There will be another day where
determination will show and we will be able to forgive. Eventually, we will have the courage and fortitude to forgive them. Forgiveness is a journey
that we have to take to come to peace with one mind. Most of us wait until the person who committed the fault comes crawling back to us, begging
for forgiveness, but that shouldn't be the case. Sometimes one has to let go and be the bigger person; not necessarily for them, but for us. Waiting for
that person to come and apologize is living in despair because no one really knows if that's going to happen. Moving on and forgiving will heal us. We
don't have to forgive them in person, but once we accepted their wrong doings and forgive them, then we can continue with our lives without hostility.
Forgiveness is a private moment with oneself and our

Definition Essay On Forgiveness
You have heard the term forgive and forget but what is forgiveness? The book definition of forgiveness is the action or process of forgiving or
being forgiven. When you forgive someone you stop being so vexed or resentful towards anyone for any error they have done to you. Forgiving is
the first step to finding peace in a unwholesome situation that has occurred in your life. For example, a drunk driver strikes your car and you are
paralyzed from your waist down. You have two alternatives, you can despise and feel anger towards the person and be miserable, letting it destroy
you on the inside or you can forgive them, feel tranquility and work on rebuilding yourself. If you continue to blame them for their actions and dislike
them, you will

Forgiveness And Forgiveness : Forgiveness
Forgiveness is a topic that is relevant to every person who has ever lived. We all need forgiveness, and we all need to give forgiveness. However,
before we can tackle what forgiveness is, we need to address some faulty thinking when it comes to forgiveness. There are several things that
forgiveness is not. It is not having a good feeling towards the person who wronged you. If you are waiting to feel good towards the person who hurt
you, you are going to wait a long time. Forgiveness is not simply a feeling. Forgiveness is also not ignoring the offense or forgetting that it ever
happened. You cannot pretend something didn't happen. Forgiveness does not mean restoring full trust to that person again or having the exact same
relationship....show more content...
God is perfect, and cannot forget anything, but forgetting is a passive human trait. Choosing not to remember is active, and that is choosing not to hold
sin against another by not bringing it up again, or shaming another person with it, or using it against a person in any way. Forgiveness brings
consequences. The offense committed may mean that we cannot trust that person again, and that is not wrong. It would be wrong, however, to refuse
to ever trust that person by not accepting any efforts to establish trust. There can also be other serious consequences of sin, and those consequences do
not make you unforgiving. "There is no promise in Scripture that God's forgiveness will eradicate all the consequences of sin." Forgiveness means
resisting thoughts of revenge. Forgiveness means wishing the other person well and having sympathy for them. It means praying for them. Forgiveness
seeks reconciliation and always being willing to serve them (Exodus 23:4).
Choosing not to forgive can have serious consequences. Bitterness begins to rule the life of an unforgiving person. He finds himself filled with anger
and mistrust of other people. He only speaks to those who sympathize with his hurt and do not challenge him. The hurt he has experienced becomes the
center of his life and his motivation for everything he does. The incident controls him. "Facts are skewed, information is twisted, and sometimes reality
is ignored in order to justify

Summary
Since 1985 there has been a tremendous increase in research regarding intrapersonal forgiveness, but very little regarding self–forgiveness. The purpose
of this article was to bring attention to the topic of self–forgiveness within this growing body of research. The definitions of self–forgiveness from
many disciplines were reviewed along with what features of self–forgiveness differ from those of intrapersonal forgiveness emphasizing the need for an
increase in empirical research on the subject matter.
There are many unanswered questions regarding self–forgiveness. It is questioned if the true self–forgiveness yields the same result as pseudo...show

The simple act of defining self–forgiveness in a way that is applicable across disciplines provides counselor and researchers a better starting point
when approaching the topic of self–forgiveness.
One concept I found very interesting was the distinction between true self–forgiveness and pseudo self–forgiveness. It is intuitive for me to believe that
it is not possible for pseudo–self forgiveness to have the same effect as true self–forgiveness, but with out research on the matter how can one be sure.
When I read that the test for self–forgiveness cannot differentiate between the two, it made me wonder if it is difficult for a person or a counselor to
know the difference. It also made me wonder if it is possible that simply believing that things are better can actually make someone feel better.
I also found the question regarding the appropriateness of self–forgiveness to be interesting. When a person believes something is their fault that is not,
what approach should a counselor take? Is it more appropriate to spend the time and effort on developing the skills to know what happened was not
the client's fault, or is it more appropriate to provide the skills that will allow the person to forgive his or herself for what they believed they caused to
happen? While this would have to be considered on a case–by–case basis, as a counselor it would be helpful to have more research on the topic that
results in guidance on how to approach these types of

Forgiveness Essay
The demonstration of forgiveness is a technique to end up distinctly unbiased, to reset the diversion, to begin new.
Forgiveness is a choice, a goal to escape blame, to clear all the obligation and stuff that keeps us stuck in self–ruinous examples.
Forgiveness does not imply that you support the awful conduct nor does it imply that you acknowledge that the insult be repeated. Forgiveness just
takes the charge off and kills it so it doesn't deplete your energy any anymore.
From a shamanic viewpoint, the demonstration of forgiveness is a recurrence, not the feeling that goes with the act of forgiveness. When we forgive,
we can feel an unbelievably sense of relief or cry tears of satisfaction, but the feeling is not the forgiveness. Forgiveness is a decision we make.

Forgiveness
Being able to forgive and forget allows people to continue to move on with their lives instead of dwelling on a situation. However, would one be
able to forget about a situation more easily if they have forgiven their transgressor first? Saima, Bierman, and MacLeod (2014) proposed a study to
address this question. They believe this is an important question to address because if forgiving makes forgetting easier, it will allow people who are
able to forgive to release offenses, empowering them to preserve valued relationships and move on with their lives.
The independent variable presented in these studies is forgiveness and the dependent variable is the ability to forget. The participants were between the

They saw a cue word for 30 seconds and were asked to press the space bar as soon as the associated scenario came to mind. Then were given one
minute to give as much detail on the scenario as they could. Finally participants then responded a second time to the forgiveness questionnaire.
The results of this study were that unforgiven scenarios were observed as more serious (M=6.750, SD= .32) than forgiven scenarios (M=4.03, SD=
.85). It was also observed that participants were more motivated to forgive the offender for scenarios that had been forgiven (M=2.92, SD=. 76) then
unforgiven (M=5.84, SD= .76) (Saima, Bierman, & MacLeod, 2014). The researchers were trying to make a causal claim that, based on this

Forgiveness
Christ Jesus some two thousand years ago came into this world to bring redemption for our sins. He did this through his death and resurrection, or
what we refer to as the pascal mystery. We still encounter the saving presence of the
Lord in the sacraments and in the Word. In each and every sacrament we come face to face with "the grace of God ourSavior" (Titus 2:11).
It is this redemption of sins aspect of the sacraments that I will be examine. In the past couple of century we have focused are attention primarily on
the Sacrament of Penance as the means to obtain forgiveness of sins after Baptism. We have come to focus on it so much that it has come to be, for

In the second and up to the sixth century A.D. a Christian could only receive the Sacrament of Penance once after Baptism. The penitent would have to
first confess before his or her bishop. The penitent would then be required to participate in the "order of penitents" of the early Church. This
required the penitent to wear special clothes, and the penitent would have to go to a special place with other penitents when worshipping with the
community. The community would pray for those in the "order of penitents" during the worship serves, and the bishop would lay his hands
on the penitents. But this laying on of hands did not take on the character of absolution until it was done during the worship serves on Thursday of
Holy Week. The penitents were not allowed to receive
Eucharist because the penitents were excommunicated, excluded from Communion.
After a period of probation, prescribed by the bishop, the penitent would be absolved of the sins the individual committed. The bishop would do this
by laying his hands on the penitent. The typical time for this reconciliation to take place was on Thursday of Holy Week before the Baptisms took
place. The reason it was done at this time was because the early Church believed that both
Baptism and Penance were both sacraments that brought about forgiveness of sins and that they should be prepared for at the same time. It was just

The Meaning of True Forgiveness Essay
The Meaning of True Forgiveness
Forgiveness is defined as a merciful act that has to be carried out by both Decisional and Emotional forgiveness; it is a true and genuine factor that is
essential to our daily lives. Everyone has had fake forgiveness happen to him or her. It occurs when that one important person does the unthinkable.
Finally, that person earns forgiveness to which one would think all is forgotten. But they are not receiving true forgiveness. This is not actually
forgiveness. When it comes down to forgiving someone one has to make that decision to; forgiveness is not something one can carelessly over–look.

Getting even is also associated with decisional forgiveness. The forgiver says the person who did wrong is forgiven but choose to partake in mean
acts towards the offender to "get even." For example, one has a best friend who they accidently offended. Their friend says they have forgiven them,
but for weeks even months down the future the friend does rude things to the offender and say they are just getting even. This is where decisional
forgiveness comes into play; if one chooses to forgive someone they need to truly forgive him or her and never bring it up again. Emotional Forgiveness
is an act that needs to take place in your heart over your mind, one cannot tell their mind their going to forgive someone. One has to have a change in
heart or that bitterness towards the offender will only grow. Worthington and McCullough state that "[E}motional forgiveness is a replacement of
negative, unforgiving emotions with positive, other oriented emotions. At first, the positive emotions neutralize some negative emotions, resulting in a
decrease in negative emotions. However, once the negative emotion is substantially eliminated, positive emotions can be built."(4) Emotional
forgiveness mostly involves ones state of mind. If someone repeatedly tells himself they can never forgive a person who has wronged them, then they
never will be able to. Emotional Forgiveness is simply whole–heartedly forgiving someone and

"Love and Forgiveness" We say that "Love and Forgiveness" are just words that shows an intimate attitude towards the people around us and can
affect the relationship between a person to another individual like in love, where love shows a very strong felling of affection to that specific person

words "Love" and "Forgiveness" are things that is hard to give or to be entrusted with someone if we see that they don't deserve it. Learning how to

Forgiveness Reflection
Forgiveness is a concept that most people do not understand, and I must admit I was one of those people before I took the class. My experience with
this concept was mainly through church sermons where the pastor explained God forgave us of our sins to restore a relationship with us. Therefore,
my definition was clouded by these sermons and I would have said forgiveness was saying you are sorry no matter who was at fault, showing remorse
for your actions, changing your actions, and reconciling to the point of being civil to the person that had wronged you. Thankfully, because of the
class Forgiveness & Communication, I have obtained information that will empower me to move forward toward a more forgiving life style.
Through class lecture, class participation, and different types of resources I have learned many things including, the need to forgive, what
forgiveness is not, what forgiveness is, effective methods of letting go, and the tools to know if you have truly forgiven and are now different. The
need to forgive affects us physically, mentally, relationally, and spiritually. The intensity and duration of the unforgiveness can cause it to become
debilitative. Accordingly, unforgiveness does not affect the other person, it affects you negatively. For instance, like the quote of Marianne
Williamson "unforgiveness is like drinking poison yourself and waiting for the other person to die." Research shows a lot of our sicknesses such
as high blood pressure and heart trouble are intensified by the lack of our not letting go of past hurts. Mentally we spend time thinking about a past
transgression more than we spend time thinking about happy events in our lives. I think it is like ivy growing in your mind, you first think the ivy is
pretty but then it starts to grow and eventually covers the wall of your mind and chokes out all other flowering vegetation, leaving you with only the
transgression and no beautiful memories. If we do not forgive it will affect our relationships and can eventually cause the relationship to cease to be.
Lastly, our spiritual growth can be hampered by our lack of forgiving and we cannot have peace in our lives. Booker T Washington once said, "the
moment I begin to hate a man

Forgiveness : The Idea Of Forgiveness
The notion of forgiveness is an important concept in our lives. It is defined as the act of apologizing or making up for the wrong one might have done
to something or someone, including themselves. Often the concept of forgiveness is associated with atonement as one tries to make up for the wrong
done in a situation or an event. However, the emotions associated with forgiveness vary and are dependent upon the person asking for forgiveness and
the person receiving it. Many times it is difficult for human beings to forgive others when the mistake that they have made is hurtful and significant.
This can lead to an outbreak of negative emotions such as pain, suffering, despair, etc. Although, when one deeply looks into the idea of forgiveness,
it is evident to say that another name for it is love and acceptance. To forgive someone, is a way to affirm that one is acknowledging the attempt of
another human to make amends. The one, who has forgiven, is removing the ego and is instead following the path of love, faith, and affection. In this
reflection paper, I will further speak on the notion of forgiveness through looking at the story of the prodigal son, how forgiveness affects us, what
role does it play in our lives, and why is it important to our existence.
In the story of the prodigal son, the father forgives his son who had made a grave mistake regarding his choices with the money he was provided by
his father through the division of the property. The son goes away and

Allah (Subhana Wataala) has granted wisdom to humans. The wisdom calls for responsibility. The more wisdom a person has, the more he/she is
responsible.
When the wisdom is missing, the responsibility is also not there. Little children are not held responsible, because their minds are not developed. The
insane are not responsible, because they have lost the thinking capacity and judgment. However, human beings are also not perfect, sometime mistakes
do occur and happens. Sometime we make mistakes without thought and intention. But sometime we knowingly and deliberately sin and do wrong to
others and affect them heavily.
It is said that human commit sins and make mistakes but Allah (Subhana Wataala) forgives them, similarly people following Allah (Subhana Wataala)

The idea of "forgiveness" is for the most part thought to be irregular in the political field. However, Hannah Arendt considers that the "staff of

Speech On Forgiveness
Increase Self Esteem, by practicing Forgiveness
Forgiveness is a very powerful and rare quality. When we forgive someone, we indirectly reveal something about our inner nature. When we don't
forgive, we continue to hold onto our bad feelings and inner anguish against the person. The ability to forgive doesn't come easily to everybody, and
when practiced, it sets us apart from others, and brings us respect.
Unforgiving people often feel that they are victims of other people's unacceptable behaviour. This victim mentality, can build up a list of things the
other person has done & increase the resentment and anger inside us. Forgiveness releases these negative feelings, and helps people come together.

Who should we forgive? Perhaps the simplest answer is – everyone!
We can be more forgiving:
пѓјBy recognizing our own faults – we will then be able to forgive other's faults
пѓјBy not placing such high standards on others
пѓјBy realizing that our values are different from other's
пѓјBy trying to see things from the other person's viewpoint as well
пѓјBy analysing what kind of a person are we? Are we perfect? Would we like others to forgive us when we make a mistake?
пѓјBy asking ourselves what we will gain or lose by not forgiving someone i.e. list the benefits and the negatives, (there will be many more negatives).
Then make a list of what are the benefits and negatives of forgiving that person, (we will actually see many more positives) ...
Soon, we will be able to understand, appreciate and practice the positives and benefits of forgiving.

Paper About Forgiveness

  • 1. Paper About Forgiveness RE AssignmentAnthony.Pulling PART 1 The concept of forgiveness is a very important forgiveness, without it the world would be a very very different place.Forgiveness is the action or process of being forgiven, or to be forgiven. Forgiveness has been displayed in the article because Kaine Barnett carelessly drove his car into the emergency stopping lane on the Hume Highway killing Sarah Frazer and Geoffry Clarke the tow truck helping her. The father of Sarah Frazer feels very sorry for Kaine he said in court " we don't want Kaine to be in prison for the next 18 months to 3 years. Kaine could have been my son. Any of this could of happened to any of our families. We don't hate him. We feel so sorry that he has to go through this. The ...show more content... The catholic sacrament of forgiveness is very important because no one is perfect ever since Adam and Eve were tempted by the devil to eat the apple from the garden of Eden no human being was perfect (Except for Mary). Imagine today's society without forgiveness and how many sins would be left unforgiven. Jesus Christ himself displayed a mind blowing level of forgiveness when he was being nailed to the cross. "...33When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left. 34But Jesus was saying, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves. 35And the people stood by, looking on. And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One."..." Luke 23:24 (BibleHub.com) In the article it is clearly stated that Kaine has remorse for his actions "One factor is Kaine's remorse. It is harder to hate someone when they already hate themselves. Since causing the two deaths, Kaine has suffered post–traumatic stress disorder with its associated depression, anxiety, flashbacks, sleeplessness and suicidal thoughts.

  • 2. College Essay On Forgiveness What do you want to pass down to your children? From the beginning of time having a family was important. Astonishingly, to have children and pass the family name down is still a blessing today. Teaching the future generation traits and qualities is essentially creating tomorrow's leaders. This question makes me consider how one simple act can mold people's lives and accordingly create a chain reaction. One trait I aspire for my children to inherit is my quality of forgiveness. Forgiveness changed my perspective in the world by understanding how much of an impression it has on the world's faith, perseverance, and love. Our God forgives our daily sins for he knows that we are imperfect. Yearningly, I hope my children to imitate this Godly quality and "forgive one another freely", thus building strength in their faith in their relationships, whether it is with God, their spouse, or their friends. All of my relationships are present today due to forgiveness. Optimistically, I wait to teach my children to resemble forgiveness so they will cultivate strength and be unmovable with their faith. When people witness my future offspring and I demonstrate these acts of forgiveness, kindness will continue and flourish in the family, community, and hopefully the world....show more content... People devote years trying to obtain revenge for something that happened in the past. In turn, perseverance means to accomplish something without letting anything be in the way and by forgiving others we can demonstrate this amazing quality by putting differences in the past and moving on to the future. In order to achieve colossal works in life we must forgive so we can accomplish massive goals. Let people understand the potential of forgiveness and how it will give you the ability to Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 3. Forgiveness : A Mental Health Perspective Essay From a mental health perspective, in order to be able to forgive others one must have self–forgiveness. When a person feels like they have been "forgiven by God predicted a greater tendency to forgive others unconditionally" (Bassett,Carrier,Charleson,Pak,Schwingel et.al, 2016 para. 13). Forgiveness is now being researched and explored in many different fields of study such including mental health, politics, criminal justice and even business classes and forgiveness will continue to be topic of new studies because of the ways that it can affect one's life. Looking at forgiveness from a psychological standpoint and being able to give forgiveness can at times be difficult on a person's mental health, yet most if not all of the studies relate back to a biblical worldview. There was a study/research trial that took place and probably is still being done so today, it is called The Stanford Forgiveness Project where they gather people to participate who have unresolved conflicts in their lives and provide a weekly session where they can talk about the conflict and why is seems to be unresolved. They talk about such things as being able not hold in the anger or harbor resentments against others, that one should not have pity parties where they are only thinking about themselves or continually portray themselves as a victim, or that the conflict only affected them, focus on what is ahead as the past is already done and one cannot go back and redo it rather one should accept it, Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 4. Forgiveness Essay Forgiveness Jesus forgave many sinners throughout his ministry, but many people were upset at his actions e.g. when Jesus healed a paralysed man. In Palestine it was the general belief that sickness was caused by sin. When Jesus saw how much faith the man had he forgave all of his sins, and the man was able to pick up his mat and walk home. Jesus believed that he could heal physically and spiritually, but the Pharisees were extremely upset because they thought Jesus was blaspheming as only God could forgive sins. No work was to be done on the Sabbath. When Jesus healed a crippled woman on this day the synagogue leaders were very angry with him for...show more content... He had kept to the house rules, by doing what his father wanted and therefore he expected a reward for doing so. In the same way the Pharisees thought that by carrying out their specific practices and keeping their rules, they were the only people who deserved heaven. As we all know, forgiving people today causes great difficulties within our local society and on a worldly scale. On September 11 2001 there were major terrorist attacks in New York by the al–Qaeda group. The American President, George W Bush, reacted to this by declaring a war against all terrorists. There was great debate on how to react to such a horrific event and no one is certain whether war was the right decision to make. Although the terrorist attacks were great atrocities, with many losing their lives and others injured, personally I don't think that declaring a war was a very responsible action. Whilst America was at war, hurt and bloodshed increased and although it helped with a few problems a lot more were uncovered. Old Testament laws suggest that you should seek revenge for how you were wronged – "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth". In the New Testament though, Jesus encourages us to "turn the other cheek", suggesting that if we are sinned against, it is better to forgive Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 5. What Is Forgiveness Essay As Jean Paul Sartre once said, "Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you." Freedom is the state of being free and at liberty rather than in confinement. When someone we care about does us wrong, we often hold resentment, anger and thoughts of revenge, but there is another solution; forgive and move forward. Forgiveness is a freeing experience. Forgiveness is not a feeling, not pretending that it didn't hurt or not saying what the person did was okay, on the contrary it is about peace and reconciliation. A question that most people don't ask is "What is forgiveness?" What are we forgiving when we say, "I accept your apology." Forgiveness is the only way a person can be fair to him or her self. It is the only way to get free of ...show more content... Forgiveness takes patience, willingness, and practice. Don't expect someone to forgive one day to the next because people's mind change when they are reluctant about choices. Don't get discouraged when weakness is present and want to retreat back. There will be another day where determination will show and we will be able to forgive. Eventually, we will have the courage and fortitude to forgive them. Forgiveness is a journey that we have to take to come to peace with one mind. Most of us wait until the person who committed the fault comes crawling back to us, begging for forgiveness, but that shouldn't be the case. Sometimes one has to let go and be the bigger person; not necessarily for them, but for us. Waiting for that person to come and apologize is living in despair because no one really knows if that's going to happen. Moving on and forgiving will heal us. We don't have to forgive them in person, but once we accepted their wrong doings and forgive them, then we can continue with our lives without hostility. Forgiveness is a private moment with oneself and our Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 6. Definition Essay On Forgiveness You have heard the term forgive and forget but what is forgiveness? The book definition of forgiveness is the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven. When you forgive someone you stop being so vexed or resentful towards anyone for any error they have done to you. Forgiving is the first step to finding peace in a unwholesome situation that has occurred in your life. For example, a drunk driver strikes your car and you are paralyzed from your waist down. You have two alternatives, you can despise and feel anger towards the person and be miserable, letting it destroy you on the inside or you can forgive them, feel tranquility and work on rebuilding yourself. If you continue to blame them for their actions and dislike them, you will Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 7. Forgiveness And Forgiveness : Forgiveness Forgiveness is a topic that is relevant to every person who has ever lived. We all need forgiveness, and we all need to give forgiveness. However, before we can tackle what forgiveness is, we need to address some faulty thinking when it comes to forgiveness. There are several things that forgiveness is not. It is not having a good feeling towards the person who wronged you. If you are waiting to feel good towards the person who hurt you, you are going to wait a long time. Forgiveness is not simply a feeling. Forgiveness is also not ignoring the offense or forgetting that it ever happened. You cannot pretend something didn't happen. Forgiveness does not mean restoring full trust to that person again or having the exact same relationship....show more content... God is perfect, and cannot forget anything, but forgetting is a passive human trait. Choosing not to remember is active, and that is choosing not to hold sin against another by not bringing it up again, or shaming another person with it, or using it against a person in any way. Forgiveness brings consequences. The offense committed may mean that we cannot trust that person again, and that is not wrong. It would be wrong, however, to refuse to ever trust that person by not accepting any efforts to establish trust. There can also be other serious consequences of sin, and those consequences do not make you unforgiving. "There is no promise in Scripture that God's forgiveness will eradicate all the consequences of sin." Forgiveness means resisting thoughts of revenge. Forgiveness means wishing the other person well and having sympathy for them. It means praying for them. Forgiveness seeks reconciliation and always being willing to serve them (Exodus 23:4). Choosing not to forgive can have serious consequences. Bitterness begins to rule the life of an unforgiving person. He finds himself filled with anger and mistrust of other people. He only speaks to those who sympathize with his hurt and do not challenge him. The hurt he has experienced becomes the center of his life and his motivation for everything he does. The incident controls him. "Facts are skewed, information is twisted, and sometimes reality is ignored in order to justify Get more content on HelpWriting.net

  • 9. Self Forgiveness | Shelia B. Hall| | Liberty University| 1/18/2015| | Summary Since 1985 there has been a tremendous increase in research regarding intrapersonal forgiveness, but very little regarding self–forgiveness. The purpose of this article was to bring attention to the topic of self–forgiveness within this growing body of research. The definitions of self–forgiveness from many disciplines were reviewed along with what features of self–forgiveness differ from those of intrapersonal forgiveness emphasizing the need for an increase in empirical research on the subject matter. There are many unanswered questions regarding self–forgiveness. It is questioned if the true self–forgiveness yields the same result as pseudo...show more content... The simple act of defining self–forgiveness in a way that is applicable across disciplines provides counselor and researchers a better starting point when approaching the topic of self–forgiveness. One concept I found very interesting was the distinction between true self–forgiveness and pseudo self–forgiveness. It is intuitive for me to believe that it is not possible for pseudo–self forgiveness to have the same effect as true self–forgiveness, but with out research on the matter how can one be sure. When I read that the test for self–forgiveness cannot differentiate between the two, it made me wonder if it is difficult for a person or a counselor to know the difference. It also made me wonder if it is possible that simply believing that things are better can actually make someone feel better. I also found the question regarding the appropriateness of self–forgiveness to be interesting. When a person believes something is their fault that is not, what approach should a counselor take? Is it more appropriate to spend the time and effort on developing the skills to know what happened was not the client's fault, or is it more appropriate to provide the skills that will allow the person to forgive his or herself for what they believed they caused to happen? While this would have to be considered on a case–by–case basis, as a counselor it would be helpful to have more research on the topic that results in guidance on how to approach these types of Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 10. Forgiveness Essay The demonstration of forgiveness is a technique to end up distinctly unbiased, to reset the diversion, to begin new. Forgiveness is a choice, a goal to escape blame, to clear all the obligation and stuff that keeps us stuck in self–ruinous examples. Forgiveness does not imply that you support the awful conduct nor does it imply that you acknowledge that the insult be repeated. Forgiveness just takes the charge off and kills it so it doesn't deplete your energy any anymore. From a shamanic viewpoint, the demonstration of forgiveness is a recurrence, not the feeling that goes with the act of forgiveness. When we forgive, we can feel an unbelievably sense of relief or cry tears of satisfaction, but the feeling is not the forgiveness. Forgiveness is a decision we make. The act of forgiveness raises our...show more content... Think of the relaxation you will experience when you finally experience forgiveness. You eliminate a huge energy leak that keeps you stuck.

This includes the damage and energy drain that comes from mental complexes, overwhelming feelings and connections.

  • 11. Forgiveness Being able to forgive and forget allows people to continue to move on with their lives instead of dwelling on a situation. However, would one be able to forget about a situation more easily if they have forgiven their transgressor first? Saima, Bierman, and MacLeod (2014) proposed a study to address this question. They believe this is an important question to address because if forgiving makes forgetting easier, it will allow people who are able to forgive to release offenses, empowering them to preserve valued relationships and move on with their lives. The independent variable presented in these studies is forgiveness and the dependent variable is the ability to forget. The participants were between the ages of 18 and 39 and were made up...show more content... They saw a cue word for 30 seconds and were asked to press the space bar as soon as the associated scenario came to mind. Then were given one minute to give as much detail on the scenario as they could. Finally participants then responded a second time to the forgiveness questionnaire. The results of this study were that unforgiven scenarios were observed as more serious (M=6.750, SD= .32) than forgiven scenarios (M=4.03, SD= .85). It was also observed that participants were more motivated to forgive the offender for scenarios that had been forgiven (M=2.92, SD=. 76) then unforgiven (M=5.84, SD= .76) (Saima, Bierman, & MacLeod, 2014).

  • 12. Forgiveness Essay Forgiveness Christ Jesus some two thousand years ago came into this world to bring redemption for our sins. He did this through his death and resurrection, or what we refer to as the pascal mystery. We still encounter the saving presence of the Lord in the sacraments and in the Word. In each and every sacrament we come face to face with "the grace of God ourSavior" (Titus 2:11). It is this redemption of sins aspect of the sacraments that I will be examine. In the past couple of century we have focused are attention primarily on the Sacrament of Penance as the means to obtain forgiveness of sins after Baptism. We have come to focus on it so much that it has come to be, for most Catholics,...show more content... In the second and up to the sixth century A.D. a Christian could only receive the Sacrament of Penance once after Baptism. The penitent would have to first confess before his or her bishop. The penitent would then be required to participate in the "order of penitents" of the early Church. This required the penitent to wear special clothes, and the penitent would have to go to a special place with other penitents when worshipping with the community. The community would pray for those in the "order of penitents" during the worship serves, and the bishop would lay his hands on the penitents. But this laying on of hands did not take on the character of absolution until it was done during the worship serves on Thursday of Holy Week. The penitents were not allowed to receive Eucharist because the penitents were excommunicated, excluded from Communion. After a period of probation, prescribed by the bishop, the penitent would be absolved of the sins the individual committed. The bishop would do this by laying his hands on the penitent. The typical time for this reconciliation to take place was on Thursday of Holy Week before the Baptisms took place. The reason it was done at this time was because the early Church believed that both Baptism and Penance were both sacraments that brought about forgiveness of sins and that they should be prepared for at the same time. It was just this type Get more content on HelpWriting.net

The forgiver says the person who did wrong is forgiven but choose to partake in mean acts towards the offender to "get even." For example, one has a best friend who they accidently offended. Their friend says they have forgiven them, but for weeks even months down the future the friend does rude things to the offender and say they are just getting even. This is where decisional forgiveness comes into play; if one chooses to forgive someone they need to truly forgive him or her and never bring it up again. Emotional Forgiveness is an act that needs to take place in your heart over your mind, one cannot tell their mind their going to forgive someone. One has to have a change in heart or that bitterness towards the offender will only grow.

At first, the positive emotions neutralize some negative emotions, resulting in a decrease in negative emotions. However, once the negative emotion is substantially eliminated, positive emotions can be built."(4) Emotional forgiveness mostly involves ones state of mind.

  • 16. Forgiveness Reflection Forgiveness is a concept that most people do not understand, and I must admit I was one of those people before I took the class. My experience with this concept was mainly through church sermons where the pastor explained God forgave us of our sins to restore a relationship with us. Therefore, my definition was clouded by these sermons and I would have said forgiveness was saying you are sorry no matter who was at fault, showing remorse for your actions, changing your actions, and reconciling to the point of being civil to the person that had wronged you. Thankfully, because of the class Forgiveness & Communication, I have obtained information that will empower me to move forward toward a more forgiving life style. Through class lecture, class participation, and different types of resources I have learned many things including, the need to forgive, what forgiveness is not, what forgiveness is, effective methods of letting go, and the tools to know if you have truly forgiven and are now different. The need to forgive affects us physically, mentally, relationally, and spiritually. The intensity and duration of the unforgiveness can cause it to become debilitative. Accordingly, unforgiveness does not affect the other person, it affects you negatively. For instance, like the quote of Marianne Williamson "unforgiveness is like drinking poison yourself and waiting for the other person to die." Research shows a lot of our sicknesses such as high blood pressure and heart trouble are intensified by the lack of our not letting go of past hurts. Mentally we spend time thinking about a past transgression more than we spend time thinking about happy events in our lives. I think it is like ivy growing in your mind, you first think the ivy is pretty but then it starts to grow and eventually covers the wall of your mind and chokes out all other flowering vegetation, leaving you with only the transgression and no beautiful memories. If we do not forgive it will affect our relationships and can eventually cause the relationship to cease to be. Lastly, our spiritual growth can be hampered by our lack of forgiving and we cannot have peace in our lives.

  • 17. Forgiveness : The Idea Of Forgiveness The notion of forgiveness is an important concept in our lives. It is defined as the act of apologizing or making up for the wrong one might have done to something or someone, including themselves. Often the concept of forgiveness is associated with atonement as one tries to make up for the wrong done in a situation or an event. However, the emotions associated with forgiveness vary and are dependent upon the person asking for forgiveness and the person receiving it. Many times it is difficult for human beings to forgive others when the mistake that they have made is hurtful and significant. This can lead to an outbreak of negative emotions such as pain, suffering, despair, etc. Although, when one deeply looks into the idea of forgiveness, it is evident to say that another name for it is love and acceptance. To forgive someone, is a way to affirm that one is acknowledging the attempt of another human to make amends. The one, who has forgiven, is removing the ego and is instead following the path of love, faith, and affection. In this reflection paper, I will further speak on the notion of forgiveness through looking at the story of the prodigal son, how forgiveness affects us, what role does it play in our lives, and why is it important to our existence.

  • 18. Forgiveness In Forgiveness Allah (Subhana Wataala) has granted wisdom to humans. The wisdom calls for responsibility. The more wisdom a person has, the more he/she is responsible. When the wisdom is missing, the responsibility is also not there. Little children are not held responsible, because their minds are not developed. The insane are not responsible, because they have lost the thinking capacity and judgment. However, human beings are also not perfect, sometime mistakes do occur and happens.
