Maat E's Mental Health Message:
We are better served trying to forgive ourselves than asking for forgiveness from someone else. It would be great to know that after we hurt someone or did something wrong we are forgiven. Forgiveness is a process not an event. It has to develop internally long before the words, "I forgive you," come out. Learning from our errors to avoid the same mistake or act is really where healing and behavior change take place. Start the healing process by forgiving yourself then changing the behavior. Have a blessed day. Peace, Maat E.
