Dr. Maria Rothenburger Says...
There is often a misconception about forgiveness; most people believe one needs to approach someone in a physical way and offer peace of some kind. This isn't the case. Forgiveness is about you. Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself to release the power that this person has over you. There are a myriad of ways you can begin to forgive the deep pain he has caused you, and I encourage you to seek out those you feel would work for you (a quick Google search should bring up a lot).
Bottom line: Forgiveness is always worth it.
