Last year I was looking at a brochure for an international conference on PTSD. One of the keynote topics was on Forgiveness and Resiliency. It made me think about the act of forgiveness and if that was something I was comfortable doing at this point on my journey. After a year of reflection, I can honestly say that I clearly choose not to forgive. I do not think it is my job to forgive. I think my job is use the power of my anger to create a life that I self author. My job is to create the life I am worthy of, one that helps me to reach my fullest potential and become more self actualized while managing a physical illness. My job is to use the power of my love to love another into their greatness and to address injustices. It is by doing these bold acts that I find resiliency on a daily basis. I do not think forgiveness alone can transcend the physical brain and body challenges due to early and prolonged trauma.
