"Forgiveness comes with the acceptance of the other individual and their feelings, and comes with an understanding of motivations for forgiveness"

Forgiveness is a daunting task for individuals, whether it's forgiving themselves or others. Studies suggest that forgiveness can serve as a therapeutic process for victims, allowing them to grow from a place of compassion. Dr. Jennifer Wortham, a prominent global researcher in the field, has gone through a transformative process of forgiveness herself. In a moving conversation with Dr. Tal Patalon, she discusses her experience of forgiving the church institution that caused harm to her family and sheds light on the essential conditions required for sincere forgiveness.
