Forgiveness releases the one doing the forgiving

The story of Joseph teaches us that forgiveness releases the one doing the forgiving, but not always the one who is being forgiven. Joseph does not carry resentment because he has forgiven. He has released his need for the past to have been any different than it was. But his brothers could only be released from their overwhelming guilt if they learned to forgive themselves.

from Weekly Torah Focus
This week's meditation, which concludes the Weekly Focus, supports us all stepping more fully into a present that is no longer infected by past shame and guilt.
