Forgiveness: Does it work?

So, I’m writing a book about how forgiveness doesn’t seem to work for so many people. I think a lot of people are jaded and fed up with high-sounding theologies that don’t have any real-life application or effect. People have tried “forgiving” others for years, but still feel the same anger and bitterness that they did the day the offense happened. Sometimes it’s even gotten worse over time.

I want to know what you think about forgiveness.

Are you frustrated or have you found healing?

What are some misconceptions you think people have about forgiveness?

What are some practical steps you can take to do the deed?

How do you define forgiveness?

Do you have a story about trying to forgive without success?
