For example, in Hinduism and Buddhism, the practice is considered essential to eliminate negative thoughts and create space for a more positive lifestyle, while Christian doctrine is based on forgiveness. God's love for mankind is shown through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Allah is also considered by Muslims as the source of forgiveness. And when it comes to philosophy, advocates of forgiveness range from Stoics like Seneca and Marcus Aurelius to the postmodern philosopher Derrida.

The act of forgiveness
Forgiveness is not about forgetting or making excuses for the person to be responsible, in this way we can forgive someone while taking precautions in the future and having a clear sense of right and wrong. For example, there may be some things your parents can't forgive you or at least feel that way right now is completely fine! You are never obliged to forgive someone that is entirely your own choice and should be done at your own pace.
Forgiveness brings us various benefits if the person is in a place where they truly feel willing and able to do so. While it can be difficult to admit when you've been hurt emotionally, holding back negative emotions from childhood can greatly affect relationships as an adult, the way you interact with the world and how you see and treat yourself. While feelings of anger and resentment are completely justified, they are also expendable sources of energy that cannot be reciprocated.
Forgiveness allows us to let go of these emotions and find peace. It has been shown to correlate with improved physical and mental health, such as reduced stress, lower blood pressure and fewer negative emotions, creating more space for happy people. It can also contribute to build the better relationships, which are important for the quality of our lives and the communities and societies in which we live.
Nowadays, Forgiveness is increasingly used popular as a therapeutic tool, although it must be made sure that individuals are not in a hurry to forgive someone when they are not ready nor do they feel that their negative emotions resulting from that experience are either worthless or better directed at themselves. As long as it is done in the right way and at the right time, forgiveness is something we can work towards with expert help.
Celebrating Forgive Mom and Dad Day
Do you have any good ideas for this day? Of course, a great way is to kick off the forgiveness process. If you don't know where to start, try talking to someone close to you or a trained therapist about your past experiences. They will be able to provide you with support and comfort as well as advice on how to get things done and build bridges with your parents or guardians.
Take time to process any pain you are feeling, although the past cannot be erased, but by not burying your head in it, you can still move forward with your life. There's a lot of advice out there on the steps to take towards forgiveness, which can involve accepting how you feel, recognizing that everyone has flaws, and focusing on how you feel what you learn from the experience.
If you feel you're ready, talk to your parents' characters and tell them about your childhood experiences and feelings. Forgive them if you can or let them know that you are working on it.
