One John Hopkins article states, "There is an enormous physical burden to being hurt and disappointed,” says Karen Swartz, M.D. , director of the Mood Disorders Adult Consultation Clinic at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Chronic anger puts you into a fight-or-flight mode, which results in numerous changes in heart rate, blood pressure and immune response . Those changes, then, increase the risk of depression, heart disease and diabetes, among other conditions. Forgiveness, however, calms stress levels, leading to improved health."

Learning forgiveness to gain healing isn't easy and it's certainly not fair. Why should any victim have to do any work to find healing? Taking back control of your life isn't always fair but you can make the choice to move forward to find health and healing for yourself regardless of what others have done to you.
