I think its a religious myth
No, no you don't......think.
Exactly what do you mean? Forgiveness can be a gift to yourself, but it's more a gift to others.
Forgiveness is an understanding of why someone did what they did and forgiving them the weakness which produced the bad action.
Many religions claim it is not an intellectual process but merely a act.
Can you function without findoing a way to forgive someone a horrible act?
Of course you can.
You just have to be in control of your full self enough to understand the world contains people so deeply flawed they deserve no forgiveness.
Its called being and adult.
so many dont seem to want to think that hard and be that adult about it
No it's not. It's an act of forgiving someone, regardless of whether you understand them or not.
Please forgive us TM.
Speaking of forgiveness have you asked High Gravity for forgiveness yet after the racial slur you slung at him?
Forgiving the self--is that some form of redemption?
I don't think Forgiving others and forgiving the self are the same concepts.
So I wonder which is truly meant.
