When you forgive, you in no way change the past—but you sure do change the future.
The grief period is fraught with tension, Grief Supporters behave badly, Grievers hold anger, very few people understand what Grievers are dealing with in their daily lives, etc. To come out of this experience as a stronger person, Grievers should have forgiveness within reach. Forgiveness won’t change the poor treatment in the past or the circumstances in which a Griever lived, but it will allow you to move into a future unencumbered by anger and hate. Forgiveness paves the way for a future of love and understanding.
