Stories Of Forgiveness In Real Life

Forgiveness is a beautiful thing. It can change your life, and it’s something that anyone can do at any time. Here are some examples of real people who have found forgiveness for their past hurts:

Lori Iverson found her husband dead in their garage.

Lori Iverson found her husband dead in their garage.

It was July 3rd, 2017 and Lori’s husband had been shot by a neighbor who had been suffering from mental health issues. She forgave the man who shot her husband as well as the neighbor who called 911 when he heard gunshots that morning.

Lori shared her story on Instagram with a caption reading “Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.”

Gail Lese forgave the man who killed her son.

Gail Lese forgave the man who killed her son. She didn’t do it overnight, but she did it.

Gail was driving to work one morning when she heard on the radio that a man had been arrested for driving under the influence and killing someone. That person happened to be her son, who had just turned 23 years old only two days before his death. The driver was Michael Jackson—a well-known artist who was known as “The King of Pop.”

After hearing this news, Gail said that all she could think about was how unfair this situation was because he didn’t deserve any of it: not getting behind the wheel while intoxicated and certainly not causing an accident that would cost somebody their life! But what really got under her skin was how everyone in the media kept referring to Michael as “the King of Pop.” In Gail’s opinion, there were far more deserving kings out there (like Jesus Christ!).

Nicole Barefoot forgave the woman who killed her sister.

The first step in the forgiveness process is to understand why you are forgiving. Forgiveness is not about being a doormat or letting someone get away with something that hurt you. It’s about setting yourself free from bitterness and resentment, which will allow you to be at peace with your past and move forward in your life.

If you have never forgiven anyone before, this may seem like an intimidating task. But forgiveness can be a very rewarding experience and it doesn’t have to be difficult! There are many different ways to practice forgiving so that it works best for each individual person:

  • Write down all of the things that bother or upset you about what happened in order to gain clarity on the situation and create space for healing emotional wounds associated with it as well as any anger towards yourself or others involved in what happened (this may take longer than simply thinking through these issues). If possible, try writing down everything else besides how angry/hurt/etc., etc., etc., etc., (continue until there’s nothing left)

Marcia Patton-Johnson forgives the woman who stole her identity.

Marcia Patton-Johnson was able to forgive the woman who stole her identity because she didn’t know the woman personally. The woman was a stranger to her, so Marcia knew that there were no personal motives behind the theft. She also knew that the thief had a mental illness, which made it even more difficult for her to feel empathy for someone who had hurt her so much.

Marcia was able to forgive because she is a Christian and knows that forgiveness is part of Christianity’s doctrine.

As any mother would do in this situation, Marcia wanted justice for what had been done to her children and herself. However, when she learned about how many people were suffering from this woman’s actions (millions of dollars lost), Marcia realized that it was not worth taking legal action against someone who did not comprehend what they were doing or why they were doing it at all – especially when there could be more victims than just herself in future crimes committed by this person…

Molly Judd forgave the driver who hit and paralyzed her son.

In the wake of an accident that left her son paralyzed, Molly Judd had to make a difficult decision. She knew she had to forgive the driver who hit and injured her son, but she didn’t want him or herself to be bitter or angry.

After finding out about the accident, Molly flew straight from home in Hawaii to Washington state where her son was being treated at Harborview Medical Center. “It was pretty devastating,” she told ABC News. “I just started crying.”

The doctors told Molly that they would have to amputate one leg and fuse two vertebrae together as well as fuse his hip joint together with plates and screws. The next day they operated on both legs and put him in traction after removing his spleen from surgery complications during surgery on the second leg where there was bleeding into his abdomen causing them concern for possible internal bleeding…

Roberta Johnson has forgiven the woman who shot her father three times in the back.

Roberta Johnson has forgiven the woman who shot her father three times in the back.

Her father was a police officer, and he was killed by a woman he had arrested before for a drug-related crime. The day of his death, she went to visit him at work with her mother. While there, another inmate asked her mother for money so that she could use it on drugs; when she refused to give it to her, this inmate started beating up both Roberta and her brother.

When Roberta’s dad tried to intervene and pull them apart, they began attacking him instead; as they were doing so, another inmate tried stabbing him with scissors but missed due to his protective vest—but this same attack left him vulnerable enough for the shooter (who had been hiding in an adjacent room) to shoot three times into his back from behind as he attempted getting up again

Forgiveness is something that can happen anytime in your life.

Forgiveness is a process, not an event. It is a choice, not a feeling. Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself, it’s not something you do for someone else to earn their love or respect.

Forgiveness is the decision to let go of the past and move into the present so that you can live in peace and harmony with others without having any regrets about your past experiences with them or yourself!

All these stories show that forgiveness is a very real and powerful thing that can happen in your life. It may not be easy, but it will help you to heal from the pain caused by the wrongdoer.
