The Power of Forgiveness
It begins when we hurt each other and we all do.
This hurt can leave an open loop in the relationship.
I heard a lecture once by Dr. Larry Fine that spoke
about these open loops. An open loop is an
unresolved hurt that can lead to resentment and
It is much easier to forgive (close the loop) when
the one that inflicted the hurt takes ownership and
admits their wrong. “I’m sorry, I was wrong, will you
forgive me?”
My kids have made it intentional to teach this
principal to their kids. They encourage the one that
did the wrong to say “I’m sorry” and then the other to
say “I forgive you”
If we can get to a place where we quickly own up to
our part and learn to practice forgiveness, we will
have stronger, healthier relationships.
