Forgiveness – what to do when we have been hurt

How to Forgive when the Knife Thrower has Sneezed – Barry Pearman has written a 3-part series on Forgiveness.

In part 2 he describes a three part cycle for dealing with hurts. The first step is to embrace the pain – acknowledge the hurt, don’t repress it. This is being mindful of the hurt.

As we do this, other hurts come to mind – the current pain is a thread in the tapestry of pain in our lives, and beyond that to the pain of the entire world. Barry uses the example of Jesus to remind us that we don’t see the full picture, and so we are in no position to judge.
