Day Two–Forgiveness, Part One

May 28, 2009

Mistakes are a fact of life. Some mistakes are easily fixed, and clear up quickly. Others never seem to go away. The hardest mistake to fix is one made against someone else. It’s not always easy to make amends to someone who you’ve wronged, especially if they’re upset. In the end, the hurt feelings caused by wronging another can last far longer than the mistake itself.

Resentment grows over time. Small feelings of anger or embaresment turn into large ones. Avoiding atonement for one’s mistakes at first makes it harder later. Additionally, as time goes on, the person wronged only feels more of a victim. This cycle must be broken.

Today, forgive someone who has wronged you. Recognize that apologizing is one of the hardest things a person can do. Internally, cease blaming. Externeally, tell the person you forgive them. It’s not an easy task, but it’s an important one. Everyone can make a mistake–it’s our task to ensure everyone can also be forgiven.

See you tomorrow. We’re just getting started.

    These blogs fail.
    You will stop writing soon.
    Save yourself trouble and stop now.
    Forgive me.

      Maybe it will fail.

      If everyone brings that attitude.

      Please, be the first to just try it.

      I’ll never stop writing so long as someone is still reading.
