Fort Collins Mental Health Counselor and Life Coach: Forgiveness

Today's Blog Post

Forgiving ourselves and others can be very challenging.  It's a complicated humanistic process that is vital to our growth and healing.  Here are a few thoughts to consider:       

  • Explore the concepts of moral, ethical, spiritual, financial, and lawful accountability.
  • Acknowledge the guilt you feel. Denying it will only give it more power.
  • Say, "I feel guilty," not, "I am guilty." Your mistakes do not define you.
  • Apologize to yourself, and anyone else you may have hurt.
  • In addition to an apology, be willing to make amends.
  • Remember, you are doing the best you can, that's all anyone can do.
  • Learn and grow from your mistakes, and avoid repeating them.
  • Realize that you are not perfect, and that's OK.
  • Be patient. It's often easier to forgive others than it is to forgive yourself.
  • It's OK to forgive, and not to forget.  Honor your values, and create healthy boundaries.
