Forgiveness is a tricky business, not least of all because it’s often used/promoted as a “quick-fix” or as a way to avoid dealing with the raw emotions of a situation (“just forgive and move on!”).
As HSPs, we are often already extremely gifted at seeing the situation through the other person’s eyes, so much so, that working hard to forgive can actually take us further away from resolving the issue, because we end up abandoning ourselves in the process.
If you find yourself getting stuck trying to forgive, it may not be YOU that can’t forgive, it may simply be that what you’re trying to do cannot really work, no matter how hard you try. Forgiveness “instructions” often leave out the part that is most important, repairing the relationship to ourselves. More on that in the video.
