Freedom in Forgiveness

We are truly free only when have the strength to forgive ourselves. When I stop carrying the burden of resentment I am free. I am the only one who can forgive my transgressions and so I do this quickly lest I forget.

When I have enough strength and courage to forgive myself, forgiving you is easy. These are some of the remarks I recall from Wednesday's service and discussion. How do you think forgiveness works or does it? What are your thougts on freedom and forgiveness?
