Have you ever thought you had forgiven someone (including yourself), only to spend time with them and immediately begin to feel all the anger and annoyance rise up again? Yeah? Me, too. However, does this mean you haven’t forgiven the person? Probably not. There are a few factors at play that can make forgiveness SEEM complicated, but it’s not… as long as you are aware of what’s going on in your heart, mind, and body. As with so many important things in life, it’s SIMPLE, but not necessarily EASY.
Hey there! I know it already seems like forever ago, but how was your Thanksgiving? If you chose to do something differently this year, whether it was a big change (starting your own tradition) or a more internal one (being armed with your self-care arsenal before walking into your in-laws), you weren't alone. So, how did it go? I'm guessing both good and little scary. However it went, you did it, and I am very happy for you! You took the step. You flexed your healthy boundary muscles. You are learning how you want to show up in the world; how to be human; how to be YOU even when people don't get it.
