This week, we are tackling one of the most personal topics out there: forgiveness.
For some, there is a massive cyclone of guilt and shame when it comes to forgiveness. From all directions, we receive messages of how we should be handling our emotions, which ultimately means many of us feel like failures.
The truth is, everyone comes to forgiveness (or not) in their own time, on their own terms. There is no one way to be and there certainly is no one way to feel. Most people mean well with their advice to forgive, but the pressure to make others feel better can be overwhelming if we haven’t yet accepted that the rollercoaster of emotions sometimes lasts 60 seconds and sometimes 30 years.
The one piece of advice that we firmly stand behind is this: forgive yourself. Make right things where you can and fire the judge. Be gentle with yourself. It isn’t easy. But if you can start there, you are on your way to freedom.
Please enjoy this conversation about our feelings on forgiveness.
