Forgiveness lets you release the burden of judgement so you can keep moving forward.
You know that nurturing a grudge against someone is an unhealthy way to keep a relationship held hostage. As a servant leader, you maintain a healthy practice of making apologies for mistakes, accepting the apologies of others, and giving people a fresh start when appropriate.
Forgiveness does not mean that you overlook problems or poor performance. It means that you accept that everyone makes mistakes from time to time, and you can let go of the negative emotions that can come from judging others’ human imperfections.
