I am deeply moved by this and how King David worked out his hardship. I have gained a deeper understanding of forgiveness

Thank you for this wonderful video on the meaning of Forgiveness. Watching it and absorbing it really made me feel better.

This article seems to deal with cursory instances where forgiveness maybe easy and we're both participants are willing to work through the issue. I'm more interested in how one forgives when the person they're trying to forgive is not willing to discuss their actions or what prompted them. It is one thing thing to accept that you can't force the communication and maybe that person's role in your life has changed or ended but it is another to forgive.

Could have brought out that the definition of the word "kapara" is to wipe clean! See Rashi Chullin 8b ד"ה למבפריה.
