Blogger Anonymous wrote the following post and is looking for your thoughts on the topic of forgiveness and moving on:
“Recently I’ve been dealing with some serious health issues – the kind that keeps me in a difficult position of worry. Ironically, with all of this going on, when I went to counseling last week, I wept about the childhood sexual abuse and how no one protected me from it.
How is that at 41, I am still hurt and processing something that happened when I was five-years old??!! And it’s not about the perpetrator, who was also a child; it’s about God and my parents not protecting me! I know we are supposed to forgive, but I am still angry.
Can you share your journey with forgiveness and healing? I need all the insight I can get and I really want to forgive and move on.”

The clips below offer a few different thoughts on the topic of forgiveness.
Please note that WINGS believes that forgiveness looks like different things for every person. While forgiveness is a part of healing for some survivors, it is not a part of the healing process for all.
