I have been doing the work of forgiveness.  Now I want to quit.  Is this normal?

The process of forgiveness is not a straight line from beginning to end.  Instead, there are times of fatigue and needing a break.  There are times of needing to go back near the beginning of the process as you find yourself getting angry again with the person.  Therefore, your current feelings are not atypical.  Instead of the word “quit,” what do you think about the idea of taking a rest, taking a break for a while?  This kind of thought may keep the forgiveness door open for you once you take the time to rest and refresh.
