I’ve noticed that many times, when someone is stuck, it is because they have something that keeps hanging on to them, dragging them down. They have something they need to release… someone they need to forgive.
And when I note this, I often get a knee-jerk answer of “how dare you tell me to forgive! I have been hurt! That person does not deserve to be forgiven.”

Forgiving is for the person who is doing the forgiving, not the one being forgiven (at least primarily).
