FOR–GIVE as a Tool is not about forgiveness.
The two are different. FOR–GIVE, as used by GOGI, is a tool, not a concept. Most religions and most cultures teach the power of forgiveness, which frees you from many negative emotions and feelings. The difference is that the GOGI Tool FOR–GIVE can help you come to a greater understanding and application of forgiveness in your life. FOR–GIVE as a tool requires that you protect yourself. This is because it is not wise to forgive someone for hitting you when they are standing in front of you with their fists raised. You would be much wiser to protect yourself first.
