CAN YOU GET ME OUT OF HERE

Music is my release. And I needed release after yesterday’s election.

the power of forgiveness

Posted on Sunday 6 November 2016

The act of forgiveness — true forgiveness from the heart — must be one of the most empowering actions that one can undertake. You can aim to forgive, but you can’t force it. Sometimes it takes time. Sometimes it takes emotional expenditure. Although I am not a person of faith, I admire the central understanding in Judeo-Christian faiths of the personal empowerment that the act of forgiveness affords us in releasing malice and ill-will. We forgive not for the forgiven, but to find balance in ourselves.

Forgiveness is the central concept of The Avett Brothers‘ “No Hard Feelings,” and it should come as no surprise that it’s lyrics are speckled with religious overtones. It’s a particularly calming and heartwarming song – whether used as reinforcement for finding forgiveness of others, or as mantra to help find forgiveness.
