Have you hurt others before? When you think back to a bad deed you bestowed upon another, it places you in the shoes of your betrayer. From here, think about why you did what you did to another. Was it because of a childhood, deep-seeded loss, absence, or betrayal? Now think about the reason for their betrayal on you. Could it be for one of the reasons you betrayed in the past? Personal pain is usually the reason behind people hurting other people. Realizing that we’re all imperfect beings on our own individual life learning paths could help with forgiveness.
