Telling People to Forgive is Gaslighting in Disguise.
I am honestly astounded, I never expected this article to be as popular as it has been! 😲It's great to see the conversations and interest that has followed this pieces published in Elephant Journal magazine. There's way more interest than I could have imagined! It's a topic I care about strongly. My perspective focuses on how damaging being told to forgive can be for people who have experienced trauma and abuse. It's a topic close to my heart. My original/ proposed title wasn't as provocative as the editors alteration "Telling People to Forgive is Gaslighting in Disguise".... [I'm learning more about catchy headlines that grab peoples attention and generate shares, views, clicks - which can have varied consequences for writers] I'm pleased to be sharing a topic that I feel is important regardless! via @elephantjournal https://www.elephantjournal.com/?p=2415305
