Thoughts and Ponderings
THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL LUNCH!
Forgiveness is the ability to move past being injured, and allow yourself to reconcile with the person who hurt you. Forgiveness can often be seen as a selfless act, but it also carries many benefits for those who practice it. Those who demonstrate forgiveness have the ability to move forward after someone has hurt them. Forgiveness is often rooted in the idea that all people are valuable and worthy of a second chance. Many who forgive have the ability to consider things from another’s perspective.
Watch the video clip below and discuss the following questions:
1. Have you ever become friends with somebody you once thought was your enemy?
2. Who is someone in your life that you would like to apologize to or forgive?
3. What is one thing you could do to start that process, even if you are not able to speak to that person?
“Life becomes easier when you learn to accept the
apology you never got.”
