I read with interest Evelyn Cole’s response (“In your own skin,” Oct. 19) to the article on forgiveness in the Oct. 11 Living section. It made a deep impression on me, as I think that if we cannot forgive ourselves for real or perceived mistakes and be accountable for our own humanness, then we lose the ability to forgive others.
This is something I continue to work on. Whether forgiveness is accepted or not, we do it for ourselves, to be a better person in this fragile world we now find ourselves living in.
I commend you for exploring this issue and thank Ms. Cole for her insight.
