The Cycle of Forgiveness

20 April 2016

I love someone very much.

That someone hurts me. I am sad and angry.

I tell the someone how the behavior made me feel.

The someone apologizes and seems sorry for what was done.

I forgive the someone. I am no longer sad or angry. I feel happiness and joy.

The someone apologizes and seems sorry for what was done.

I forgive the someone. I am no longer sad or angry. I feel happiness and joy.

I love someone very much.

That someone hurts me.

I am sad and angry;

I do not tell the someone how the behavior made me feel.

That someone hurts me again. It doesn’t hurt as much this time because I knew it would happen.

I love someone very much, but I know that this someone will not take care of my feelings in a thoughtful or kind way. Explanations are not going to make things better.

I start to avoid this someone. I find other, better places to be than the places where this someone is. If possible, I cut this someone out of my life entirely.

I feel happiness and joy.

Occasionally, I am sad because I miss the good parts of the someone who hurt me, but I remember the pain the someone caused. It doesn’t hurt as much from the distance of time, but I remember that it hurt. I remember how often I explained that it hurt, but the someone kept doing it anyway. I look at the good things that I have in my life now, even without that someone.

I feel happiness and joy.
