Un-Forgiveness. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

There is no upside to un-forgiveness. Forgiveness doesn't mean you are condoning their bad behavior. It doesn't mean they shouldn't be held accountable for their actions. It doesn't mean you are setting yourself up for future victimization. Withholding forgiveness doesn't punish the offender. It actually punishes yourself because it is a form of self-attack and self-sabotage. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO

Is There Any Action That Is Unforgivable?

No action is unforgivable. It just requires a willingness. Why be willing? Because when we withhold forgiveness from others, we are withholding it from ourselves. The opportunity we have to forgive others their trespasses is our own personal ticket to heaven. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO

Without loving acts, loving words are meaningless.

Talk is cheap. Talk is easy. Walking the talk? Not so much so. And yet massively more important, critically important to satisfying and sustainable relationships. If you care for someone, it's nice to tell them but more important that you show them in your actions, empathy, and your acts of compassion and consideration. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO

Admit when you’re wrong. Say you’re sorry.

Regardless of how people treat us, when we do something that is wrong, that is hurtful, that is unloving.... we need to own it. We need to acknowledge it. We need to take responsibility. And we need to apologize, to say we're sorry. And we need to make a sincere effort not to repeat the mistake in the future. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO

Listen before you think. Think before you speak.

Oftentimes we are thinking of a response to someone before they have even finished talking. This isn't really listening because this does not allow for subtext to be "heard." So your communication is flawed. Best to listen before you think and then think before you speak. Rather than impulsively and recklessly retorting, consider what you want to say and choose your words wisely. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO

Don’t Be Reckless. Don’t Play It Safe.

Best not to make impulsive, reckless, thoughtless decisions and actions. Being spontaneous is nice but put some thought into what you're doing so that the spontaneous action has the best chance of not generating negative consequences. At the same time, best to take risks. If you want to succeed you have to risk failure, rejection, and criticism. You can't hit a home run if you don't step up to the plate. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO

Should Bullies Be Forgiven?

We forgive others for our own peace of mind. We forgive others unconditionally. Forgiving others, including bullies, does not mean that we are weak or foolish. It does not mean that we are a doormat. It does not mean that we are inviting more abuse. We forgive others to heal ourselves. Therefore it is counterproductive to withhold forgiveness from others. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO

How To Overcome Bad Habits

Bad habits cannot be overcome by will power and determination alone. These components are necessary but what is also necessary is an understanding of your emotional triggers that generate the bad habit behaviors. When you understand the triggers and create positive self talk to neutralize them, it becomes much easier to extinguish the old programming. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO
