Forgiveness, to forgive. Why is it so hard to do? Is it that we think we are condoning the person's behavior if we forgive the person? What do we gain by not forgiving? What do we lose by not forgiving?

We lose a great deal when we hang on to resentments. Science shows it's bad for our health- physical and mental.

In this episode of Precarious, I explore forgiveness: its definition and and give an example of "how to" forgive.

Why this topic? As I get closer to dying, society gives the message that part of gettting my affairs in order is to ask for forgiveness as well as forgive others.

PS - I turn 57 on July 28th. I didn't think I'd live this long once I was diagnosed with cancer back in 2013. Life if full of surprises.
