Realizing you're wrong and saying I'm sorry can be difficult for some people, but what can be even more difficult is the act of forgiving someone. The worse the situation is the harder it can be to forgive the other person, even if you want to. If you're having trouble forgiving, the online therapists at 7 Cups can help.
The guilt the other person is feeling can weigh heavy on them, but that guilt isn't always theirs alone to carry. Sometimes the person who isn't at fault feels guilty for being unable to forgive. Holding on to negative emotions can take a toll on your mental wellbeing, and forgiveness can be a way to relieve some of this burden.
That's not to say forgiving can be easy, in fact, as we said, often forgiveness is harder than apologizing. When you have been hurt it can be a challenge to get to the point where you can forgive. You may find that it can be hard to reach the point where you are able to do this. That's why talking to a neutral party, like the online therapists at 7 Cups, can be extremely beneficial.
If you're trying to find the strength to forgive someone, you don't have to try and do it alone. Talking to our online therapists can be a huge help. Not only will they be an objective and neutral party, but you will have the space to open up to them and work together on the steps of forgiving someone. They can help you deal with your emotions in a healthy way and move past the negative feelings that are weighing you down.
