Very recently, I read an article where a famous celebrity was nominated for an achievement award, which I personally didn’t think was deserving of her due to past political views she expressed.
As I related these views to my husband, he lovingly pointed out that was not how I professed to live my life.

With the forgiveness I experienced in forgiving the thoughts I had of her, I was freeing myself of old self-condemning thoughts of myself
