Do you think it’s easier to forgive yourself for an offense that you’ve done or is it easier to forgive someone else?
Interesting...easier to forgive myself, no. No I have a hard time forgiving myself, I think I’m really harsh on myself and like I think I would be angry with myself for something that maybe somebody else wouldn’t really hold in such high regard, or at least at the same caliber, whereas someone were to do maybe even the same action to me I’d be more like “Don’t worry about it, it happens.” Yeah
Do you think it’s easier to forgive yourself once you’ve been forgiven by someone else?
Definitely, yeah, it definitely validates the emotion of “Okay well it’s okay what I did, they say it’s alright, so then I should be alright with it.” It might, there might be kind of a grace period in between that but I find that in a lot of emotions it helps if you’re validated by someone else telling you that that emotion is okay.
