What is the relationship between forgiveness and self esteem? Is there a connection between them?

Yes, and our research shows over and over again that as people forgive, they start to like themselves more.  In other words, when beaten down by others, the offended people tend to believe the lie. Forgiveness releases them from the lie that they are worthless and instead they see that all people have worth.  Thus, their self-esteem rises.
