This has nothing to do with Frozen. I don't know if that makes you feel relieved or upset. Personally, I think I may go nuts if I hear that song one more time. My almost-two-year-old daughter, Josephine, has an insatiable urge to listen to that song on repeat. It's gotten to the point where Julia and I can't even say the words "Let It Go" in our home.
Thankfully, this has nothing to do with that. This is about forgiveness.
“I just can’t let it go.” “They don’t deserve to be forgiven.” “It hurts too much to move on.” Maybe you’ve heard your students say something like this in the midst of pain, frustration and anger towards someone who has hurt them—or maybe you’ve said or thought something similar yourself. Choosing to forgive someone who has hurt us is never easy. So why does it matter so much that we do it? How do we know when we should do it? And how do we know we have actually healed from the pain an offense has caused? How do we simply let it go?
