Forgiveness. We know as believers, we are to forgive. Especially given that God forgives us as Christ paid the ultimate price so that we may be forgiven. Forgiveness is not exclusive to forgiving others, we may have to forgive ourselves. To let go of those mistakes, learn from them, then give them to God. Sometimes there are people or acts that may seem unforgivable. Especially if the acts that seem unforgivable either cut you to your core, and/or are repetitive. Trust me, I understand. However, the element we should strive to understand is that unforgiving & holding onto bitterness is a prison we create for ourselves. Bitterness is not a root that should be watered. It can entangle into your heart, mind, & soul. It can grow into a large tree that may block your vision & blind you for the plans, love & freedom God has for you.
