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

Want to change your ways? Be honest about your whys.

It is difficult to change when we embrace denial and rationalization rather than admit the truth about ourselves. The truth is we often have an agenda we are not aware of which is driving our behaviors. Or we are aware of our agenda but we don't want to deal with it. Either way, our efforts to change will fail until we are willing to hold up a mirror and honestly look at ourselves. 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."

Rather than impulsively and recklessly retorting, consider what you want to say and choose your words wisely. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO
