10 Tips to Help You Forgive Someone Who Has Hurt You ...


I created this list of tips to help you forgive because I needed to etch it in my heart as well. I have this conversation often with my friends and family about forgiveness. Often the question is, "But HOW do I forgive when...?" That's a great question! How do we forgive? What is forgiveness anyway and how do we know that we have truly forgiven a person? These tips to help you forgive have helped me greatly along the way.

1. You're Not Perfect

You're not perfect and neither am I, no matter how hard we try to be. We are all human and we all make mistakes. I remember reading a book about a woman who had a near death experience, and one of the things she wrote about was how she realized how often she had offended people on earth and had absolutely no idea that she had done it. At some point you will need to ask someone for forgiveness, so humble yourselves and learn to forgive others when they need it… whether they ask for it or not.

#4, what he did to me was about me personally, so it's a little hard
Forgiving is nice for letting negative feelings go, but I hope people realize you don't have to continue being friends or in a relationship. If someone has hurt you enough, forgive them but move on.
Forgiving is hard ... I'm still working on a lot of things 😔
