Olivia and her daughter Ava discuss their conflicts.
Mom, I read that forgiveness is, "about retrieving a healthy sense of of self. It has the potential to free us up from all the negative feelings that imprison us, which prevent us from living life to the fullest and from loving others, God, and even ourselves" (Saracino 174).
Olivia struggles with forgiving her daughter.
I understand. Forgiveness is a necessary part of life and it is healthy. I now see the importance of forgiveness and why we need to forgive each other.
I agree. Without forgiveness, we cannot be open with each other.
Ava struggles with forgiving her mother.

I forgive you and I'm ready to move on.
Ava refers to her reading of Christian Anthropology as the two attempt to solve their conflict.
