Holiday traditions and festive gatherings are an opportunity to see family and old friends. While this time of year can be filled with joy, it might not be wonderful for everyone.   

Along with the people who love and support you, there may also be someone who caused you pain and that person could be sitting at the table.   

You might not have forgiven this person because of the anger, resentment, and bitterness their actions have caused you. But holding on to that pain can eat away at you and could be harmful to your health

MPR News host Angela Davis talks with Mary Hayes Grieco about forgiveness and why forgiving the people who hurt you the most is beneficial to your health.
