Support our Nonprofit Magazine!
Before you start reading... There has never been a time when our community and content was needed more. As a nonprofit online community and magazine, we provide FREE articles, videos, and other content that is available worldwide, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Due to the global pandemic, we’ve had to put events, collaborations and business sponsorships on hold, leaving us to rely exclusively on online donations from our community (aka YOU!) We want to be here to support you all through this pandemic and beyond, which is why we are asking you to consider donating whatever you are able. A single (or monthly) donation of just $5 will make a difference and will help keep our nonprofit running so we can continue supporting you and others.
In today’s video, I talk about the three steps of forgiveness. Forgiveness is important for our relational health and our mental health as a whole.
Step 1: Forgive Yourself
- Forgive yourself and don’t blame yourself any longer
- Note: forgiveness doesn’t imply blame is warranted (e.g. in situations of abuse)
- Forgiveness is about offering yourself grace
Step 2: Forgive the Other Person
- The other person doesn’t need to be present or even aware
- Find your reasons for forgiving (e.g. they didn’t know any better OR for your own closure etc…)
- Forgiving doesn’t necessarily mean the person should be allowed back into your life
Step 3: Let Go (and be free!)
- The final step towards healing
- Leave the situation in the past and move forward
- This is where you find freedom
When you hate, the only one that suffers is you because most of the people you hate don’t know it and the rest don’t care. (source: Ghosts of Mississippi)
