….it just might exist

Errare humanum est, ignoscere divinum (300)

The English poet Alexander Pope once wrote, “To err is human, to forgive, divine.” To truly understand the profundity of this statement one must first unpack and define what “forgiveness” means both denotatively (i.e. how the dictionary defines it)) and connotatively (i.e. how you emotionally define it). If you’re truly truly honest with yourself, you will see a clear dissimilarity between the two….however, I will forgive you if you don’t. (ha!)

Prompt: We’re going to keep this very simple – Write about forgiveness

Questions to consider:

  • In your opinion, what is forgiveness? How does it differ from what it really is?
  • Do you forgive? If so, is it easy? Is it something you really work at? Explain.
  • Do you struggle with forgiveness? If so, why? Explain.
  • What does forgiving someone look like to you? What does not forgiving someone look like to you?
  • What are some things you’ve been able to forgive? (or) What are some things you’ve been unable to forgive?
  • Write about self-forgiveness….have you ever felt the need to? Share. 
  • How are forgiving and forgetting different? The same?

(These are just a few. You are more than welcome to come up with your own, they simply must be on the topic of forgiveness.)
