The Blessing of Forgiveness

The Blessing of Forgiveness
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor

Forgiveness is so powerful. When someone asks from their heart that you forgive them, that act of forgiveness feels like lifting an anvil off of your own heart, an anvil you couldn't lift alone, a weight that required two lifters. What a holy feeling, and what bravery it requires. Blessed are You, God, Who gives us the strength to forgive and be forgiven.
