How to Forgive Your Ex and Yourself
by Kim Hess

After ending a marriage, you might be geared up and ready to start another relationship, in hopes to end the pain and disappointment caused by the last one. Before you jump into a new relationship, you must heal old wounds by learning how to forgive your ex, as well as yourself.

Don't Let Anger Linger

You will not only be working towards forgiving your ex, but healing yourself.

Forgive the Failure

Keeping the blame on yourself or your former spouse will not bring back your marriage or give you a happy life. Let go of the negative energy and move on.

Give Up the Guilt

It is possible that you said and did things to your ex that you now regret. Realize that you cannot change the past. Apologize to your ex if it will make you feel better. Then forgive yourself and move on.

No Reason to Fight

Remember that there is no reason to hold grudges. You both have separate homes and lead separate lives. Leading two different lives should keep conflict between you two at a minimum.

Good Qualities

Try to appreciate the good in your ex and that will help the process of forgiveness.

Although you are making a commitment to forgive, you are not giving up what you believe is right. You are not saying the bad things that happened to you don’t matter or that you will forget. You are saying that you want to move on to a better and richer life. Remember that it takes a willingness to want to heal. By moving through the emotional pain of divorce and forgiveness, you hold the power to be happy and fulfilled!

We'll teach you how to #LiveTo100!
