Every day we are faced with news about someone who did something awful to another person, place or thing. Sometimes these bad things happen and it isn’t in the public eye, yet affects us as their loved one, nonetheless. It is a sad reality and sometimes we forget that everyone, regardless of their past, has a family, friends and even co-workers. They have had people in their lives they have interacted with for the both the positive and negative, as we all have.
Time and again we see victim’s families offer forgiveness and grace to those who have had a negative impact on their family. At the end of the day, we all face the choice to forgive and love, or not. We all live this life with its many twists and turns. With choices and consequences, we are born into classes, cultures and perceptions, so of which serve us well and others that take us down paths that are unhealthy and even dangerous.
Unconditional Love and Honoring Your Loved One
Sometimes when we lay a loved one to rest, we may experience some level of shame over the way they lived and/or our role in that. When it is time for a funeral or other end of life services, we may struggle with what to say, how to honor them, even who to invite.
