The Paradoxes of Life - The Forgiveness Paradox

The paradox of forgiveness is that the one you are finding most difficult to forgive in your life, the one who has hurt you the most, is the one who has actually taken trouble to help you in your growth. When you learn the lessons from the experience and see the perpetrator as the one who is helping your growth, forgiveness enters, resentment dissolves and love and peace can find space.

This concept is explained wonderfully well by Colin Tipping in his book 'Radical Forgiveness'.
