Sorry I dont believe in forgivness,. I dont believe that if I forgive my rapist I will be a better person.
Or anyone else that has caused me pain.
I take the pain and channel it well.
Also a learn from it and grow something beautiful out of it.
However this process has nothing to do with forgiving anyone.
"Forgiveness is saying ‘Hey, you did something, I was wronged. But it’s ok. I don’t hold you responsible for your actions now, and I don’t feel upset about it anymore.’"

Taking the pain of your life and transforming it into strength, wisdom and compassion is wonderful and I appreciate what it takes for anyone to do this good work.

However, I would still classify that as forgiving because you're not holding on to the pain pattern.

Forgiving is simply that... letting go of the pain of the past so you don't drag it along with you in your life.

This says nothing about the other person not being responsible, but that it's their life issue and no longer has anything to do with you in your freedom.
