This school year, CCS is participating in the Positivity Project.
A different character trait or topic is highlighted and discussed at school each week.
This week's character strength is forgiveness.
According to the Positivity Project's Weekly Roundup:
Forgiveness is the ability to move past being injured, and allow yourself to reconcile with the person who hurt you.
Forgiveness can often be seen as a selfless act, but it also carries many benefits for those who practice it.
Those who demonstrate forgiveness have the ability to move forward after someone has hurt them.
Forgiveness is often rooted in the idea that all people are valuable and worthy of a second chance.
Many who forgive have the ability to consider things from another's perspective.
Forgiveness does not mean rolling over and allowing yourself to be harmed.
It does not mean that you forget the transgression.
By forgiving someone, you don't have to say that what he/she did was okay.
And, forgiveness is not contingent on the other person apologizing.
