When Jake learned that his dad had a new job, he was exited at the possibility of making new friends and picking up where he had left off at his old school. However, instead of being welcomed into his new surroundings, he was bullied.

The memories of how he was treated remained with him throughout his time in school. He said, “ The pain and the anger and the self destruction defined me.”

He had a choice to make; did he hold on to the bitterness? Or would he forgive those who had so mercilessly harassed him? He realized his senior year that he needed to let go of the harbored memories of being bullied and seek healing for the emotional scars left behind.

Through his faith he was able to move on and forgive those who had harmed him, and he received the full healing that can only come through forgiveness.
