Forgiveness Sucks!

I don't buy the idea of forgiveness. I believe it's a faulty concept and goes against the grain of human nature as it exists in the real world. Also, it is more of a Christian emphasized ideal concept than a Jewish one.

Forgiveness can be the hardest thing to do.

It wasn’t easy to forgive the person, but I did it

I was very upset at someone, and I even asked advice from two people I am close with who tried to help me let go of the pain.
I looked at this video and the other Aish hatorah video about trying to forgive, and I had to watch both of them a few times before I could internalize their messages.
B’H, I was able to forgive the person.
Thank you for your wonderful articles and videos.

Transfering Forgiveness

One should let go of the pain. But forgiveness cannot be fully transmitted to those who do not seek it (and have therefore not asked for it).

I enjoyed this video; I still don't understand how I am to forgive my son's murderer.

To commenter #10 Linda Sherman

I am so very sorry that your child was murdered. IMO certain acts cannot be forgiven.

Great Learning

Thank you for making the video and helping to educate us. The video on forgiveness explains why I have been stuck and unable to move on. With this new understanding, I will do my best to forgive and move on. I'd like some joy and peace back in my life. Shalom

Wonderful

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

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.

AS SIMPLE AS IT IS NARRATED, LET THE SUBSTANCE OF FORGIVENESS BE OUR LIFESTYLE , TO COME INTO OUR HOMES. VERY EASILY UNDERSTOOD TO MAKE IT WORK IN MY LIFE. THANK YOU SO MUCH
