This year I have observed a startling trend that individuals and couples refuse, “can’t” or more accurately do not want to take ANY responsibility for their poor choices and behaviors that have hurt those they say they love.  Now, these people are adults, not children, although you would not know it.

I have observed that many, if not most, people really do not understand what forgiveness means or how to sustain and maintain it.  Furthermore, people who have grown up in religious homes have the most difficult time as compared to some with little to no religious or spiritual understanding.  Now, this is not absolute.  [...]

The ads, products, services, fundraisers, salesmen, and pitches we see or hear in a day are in the thousands from radio, internet, TV, social media, posters, and billboards.   It is also difficult with friends, family, kids and our [...]
