Cheating Husband: Forgiveness

JOPHIELsmiles
I don't really understand what forgiveness is all about. I have always thought forgiveness is essentially saying that it's okay the person did something so horrible to you and you're willing to let it go.

Our marriage counselor explained forgiveness in a completely different way. She said that it's accepting what happened, not condoning it at all, but able to move past it.

I'm not sure if I agree with that and because of that, I don't think I will ever be able to say that I forgive my husband. In some people's definition (like the therapist's definition) I have forgiven my cheating husband, but according to mine, I cannot.

Forgiveness is just a word. The feelings you have are much more valuable than the power of a word. I'm sure my cheating husband would love to hear my say that I forgive him. I can't give him that power though...not when he took all my power away from me.
