3 Steps of Forgiveness | Libero Magazine
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.

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

Closing quote: 

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)
