Quoting: Stages in Willingness to Forgive

There are three levels of willingness to forgive others:

(1) Some people forgive anyone who wronged them if that person comes over and asks forgiveness.

(2) Others go out of their way to meet those who wronged them to make it easier for them to ask for forgiveness.

(3) People on the highest level explicitly state each night before they go to sleep that they forgive anyone who insulted them, even if those people will not ask for forgiveness on their own.

  1. Great post. It is a way to personal freedom and happiness. Forgiving yourself and others is a keystone to living a better life. Look at any religious teachings. I practice this everyday because of AA. It has led me to a wonderful happy life. Thanks.
