Psychologists and psychiatrists today generally agree that forgiveness is a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance or anger toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness.

Dr Tony Evans in his book Detours  divides forgiveness into two categories: unilateral and transnational. If  we forgive someone unilaterally we don’t expect a response. We forgive and forget.  That doesn’t mean we were not impacted by the  or words by the  ocean we are forgiving; it just means we are no longer allowing What they said or did to take up residence in our  minds and thoughts.

If you choose transnational forgiveness you will try to reconcile the relationship with the person  whose actions or words caused you to harbor resentment and  unforgiveness.
