On Forgiving….Or Not

I’ve never been a big proponent of forgiveness but couldn’t really get my reasoning across, clearly…..or at least not as clearly as Ms. TaLynn Kel. (Link to her very well thought out piece, HERE). I completely agree with her when she tells us that being asked or ordered to forgive someone is manipulative and that….

it’s been a tool used to convince the oppressed to peacefully endure their oppression and to grant oppressors the freedom to discover the error of their ways without oversight or accountability.
