Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a state of being, achieved by one who can now, allow the forgiven to return back to relationship equilibrium.

The affected party needs introspection to determine the residual effects and negate them, by either re-calibrating their exacting levels of expectation and accept the forgiven for who they are, or come to the realisation that the root cause of the offence is a heightened level of ego within themselves which needs to find hubris.

In either circumstance, true forgiveness can only be achieved when, without altering the state of love towards them, you are able to reset to, exactly where you were prior to the incident.
