How do you forgive someone of a deep hurt - when an apology is never actually given? Do we even have to forgive the person? And if we do forgive, do we have to reconcile? If you’re walking around with resentment from a hurtful conversation or action, this episode is for you, friend. Tune in as Mary walks through the first step of forgiveness, how to forgive when an apology isn’t given, overcoming the fear of being hurt again, and why forgiveness doesn’t always mean reconciliation. We’ve all been there – our feelings hurt and minds racing - replaying the conversation and how we wish we had responded. But no more. It’s time to gain freedom back for your head and heart because your relationship with yourself is too important to go another day carrying around that heavy weight of unforgiveness.
