Forgiveness of our parents comes when we clear away the cobwebs in our minds, when we allow ourselves to see our anger and pain and then let go of it, knowing there is no value in maintaining our attachment to these feelings. Forgiveness is not a matter of feeling superior, of feeling sorry for our parents because they didn’t know any better. It comes when we understand that as humans we all do the best we can, and we can’t ask for more than that. Forgiveness is making the choice to find no more value in anger. (Jampolsky, Gerald G., MD. Out of Darkness Into the Light. p 174-176. NY: Bantam Books, 1989)
