9 Principles of Forgiveness

  1. Take responsibility for dealing with the hurt, and own your part
  2. Name the wrong and its full impact (emotionally, relationally etc)
  3. Release the person of their debt to you, even if it feels unfair
  4. Don’t expect immediate changes in the person you are forgiving
  5. Try to understand them without rationalizing their behaviour
  6. Persevere in your intention to forgive, despite contrary feelings
  7. Differentiate between forgiving and trusting/reconciling
  8. Seek reconciliation, unless it will cause more harm to self/others
  9. Enlist emotional support or counselling for deep wounds
