Excellent post, MJ!
i know forgiveness is a difficult concept - even a trigger - for many survivors. for me it was essential - and as you say, a freeing experience. i don't think i could have progressed at all without it. and it is ongoing...
Thank you for writing and sharing this.

How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
