This is a good question. How can you forgive someone who isn't sorry? Let's first make sure we understand what forgiveness is and what it isn't. Forgiveness is not the act of granting or bestowing something upon someone. Forgiveness does not require a person to be sorry. Forgiveness does not let a person off of their wrong doings. Forgiveness does not mean that we agree that what happened was okay.
So then, what is forgiveness all about? Here are the steps on how to forgive someone who isn't sorry:
1. Turn your brain on
2. Reframe the experience
3. Take full responsibility
4. Write a new story
You'll definitely want to take notes during this one!
