Forgiving people can be hard. Like, really hard.
This video gives some extra tricks to forgiving someone. One is that when someone is angry and saying or doing things that will require forgiveness, chances are they are actually scared. Fear makes us do all sorts of things.
Another is the idea of the strength behind the weakness. We all have strengths, and each strength has a "shadow" weakness. As the video puts it, someone who has the strength of thoroughness at work might also be thorough in pointing out every grammar error they see around them.
Maybe next time I need to forgive someone, it will help to remember their fears and their strengths.
