There isn’t a person in the world who hasn’t been hurt by someone. Releasing the pain from these wounds is difficult for many, if not most. The number and type of hurts suffered in the past, combined with thoughts and beliefs, can make it difficult to release the past. When you add the biochemical response the body has to hurt, it’s a wonder anyone can forgive another.
