Worryingly, the concept floats around in therapy circles and has been widely imparted, a message that forgiveness is necessary for personal growth. 

Forgiveness echoes indiscriminatingly—to people who have experienced what may be considered “minor hurts,” as well as those who live with debilitating trauma as a result of someone else’s actions.
