Forgiveness isn't easy, but it's so necessary to avoid living in confinement or "in prison".
This brief video clip comes from the TV show Code Black. Dr. Leanne Rorish visits the man in prison who killed her husband and two children as a drunk driver. Notice their use of the word "prison" to describe their pre-forgiveness situation.

Then why don't people move more intentionally toward forgiveness? Likely because they are unaware of what forgiveness ISN'T.
Forgiveness is NOT . . .
