Forgiveness. Nelson Mandela once said “Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.” Candice Mama talks about the importance of both holistic emotional experience and forgiveness. We must address our hurt and pain - hold ourselves accountable to our emotions before we can seek healing. Forgiveness is not simply acknowledging someone’s apology, it is navigating a labyrinth of honesty, self reflection and acceptance. To free yourself of the chains of resentment you must forget what you cannot forgive and forgive what you cannot forget, this is the path to self healing. Forgiveness does not make you weak, if anything it is an attribute of the strong. Do not forgive because they deserve forgiveness, forgive because you deserve peace. In this episode of the Matt Brown Show, Candice talks about her incredible experience of forgiving Eugene De Kock the former South African Police colonel, torturer, and assassin, who when active under the apartheid government murdered her father and shares insights into the power that comes with forgiveness and how you can use that power to be emotionally whole and true to who you are. So without further adieu enter Candice Mama.
