A little while ago, a treasured online friend reminded me of how important it is to express gratitude when trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Recently, I was reminded of this friend while watching the Angelina Jolie directed movie Unbroken, in which forgiveness is promoted as the key to overcoming torture, abuse, victimisation and trauma. Forgiveness and gratitude are two emotions promoted by self-development leaders as being important in the furthering of positive change. I personally know that without forgiveness there can be no real sense of gratitude, no matter how much it may be expressed by an individual as being an I am. It is heartfelt forgiveness that frees the mind from the emotional claims that bind it to the past. It was forgiveness that gave me back my future and for this I am grateful ~ Chris Tyne.
