Most people would agree that when a person has wronged someone he or she should render an apology. This very popular opinion, however, is not always the case. To be quite frank, many times the offender will never apologize for whatever reason. Consider these reasons as a motivation to forgive even if you never receive an apology.
Forgiveness is not intended to release the offender its purpose is to free the offended. Oftentimes we believe if we forgive we are forgiving the hurtful act. This is not true, forgiveness in many cases can be used as a tool to regain your mental power in an effort not to be held hostage by the issue.
