At the end of the forgiveness process, you mention finding a purpose in life. I have forgiven my Mom for a lot of hurts when I was little and even into my adolescent years. Yet, I have not yet found my purpose in life. How do I go about finding purpose?
You might begin to find your purpose in life by asking the big questions of life: Why am I here on this earth? What is my end-point in this life? In other words, what is the greatest good to which I am striving here on earth? As you forgave, what new priorities in life have you discovered? Are these worth pursuing and how can you pursue them in the context of friendships, family, and work? And if you are a believer, have you combined all of this in prayer? You need not find your purpose alone.
