I think that all of us here on a journey towards something but most of us really have no idea what exactly we are going in search of .

You are definitely on the right path.

Forgiveness is not for the other person, it is for us. We forgive because otherwise the bitterness eats us up from the inside out. It is also possible to forgive the person and not the action.

Forgiveness is not 'putting it all behind us.' Forgiveness is accepting that we can have the life we deserve without being haunted.

Whilst I do not have anything insightful or deep to add to this I wanted to say that I read it and that it seems that you are a good way along the journey to be thinking about forgiveness and so on - snaps to you for that, I respect that a lot. And what a great breakthrough, realising that you were the innocent victim. Thats so great.
