Sometimes forgiveness is something we take for granted. Like if I get into a little tiff with my daughter, I know she’ll forgive me and she knows I’ll forgive her. But it’s in the taking for granted that we sometimes feel bad. That’s why it’s such a great practice to take baby steps in building our forgiveness muscles.
So I found myself today, again, wanting to be right about something with my daughter, instead of just apologizing because I hurt her feelings. I decided what I needed to do was to just apologize and let her know that I truly am sorry that I hurt her feelings, because I am sorry about that. It’s a baby step yet I know that practice like this really makes all the difference.
Wishing you the realizations of all the ways you can practice forgiveness with baby steps…
