How can I know that I've forgiven or been forgiven? Why should I try to forgive? Will anything be different? Can we forgive ourselves? Can I forgive someone who neither admits nor regrets what they did? What if I've been harmed by a group or institution — is forgiveness possible then? How important is confession and to whom should I confess? Can prayer really make a difference? Are some things unforgivable? Does forgiving mean that I must try to forget? Is reconciliation always possible or even desirable?
