1. New Video: Forgiveness for you and for others…

  2. Question for everyone: Are you working on forgiveness? If so, is it
    forgiveness of yourself or of another person? Let’s discuss :)

  3. “To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was
    -Lewis B. Smedes

  4. i know a story of somebody who wont forgive his baby brother for something
    that happened when he was 7 years old and the brother was about 9 its
    really sad because they used to be best brother friends thx for the ha
    bisky vid

  5. your videos are really helpful!!! thank you!!! 

  6. Both King David and Jesus advised forgiveness as a means of resolving
    personal problems, this being promoted without any superstition at all.
    Simply saying that if a person hates and holds grudges, he won’t do as well
    as if he were to forgive people and move with friendship, love and
    kindness. :)

  7. What is of particular interest to me is: the question of forgiveness of
    self when what the person did was really serious & can’t be undone. Just as
    an example, say someone caused a fatal auto accident as a result of
    reckless driving. I have had conversations regarding this with several
    individuals. I have maintained that some things are so serious that
    self-forgiveness is inappropriate; & that, in these types of cases, the
    appropriate goal is simply acceptance… in other words simply being able
    to acknowledge to oneself that you did do whatever it was that occurred &
    to be able to move on. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this, Kati!

    ‘Forgiveness liberates the soul, it removes fear. That is why it is such a
    powerful weapon.’ – I think Mandela is one of the most inspiring
    testimonies to the power and freedom that can be found in forgiveness.

  9. “Just because I forgive you doesn’t mean I will trust you again”

  10. So I had a panic attack bc my class did something and I was going crazy and
    stuff and I was angry at the whole class and the same day I made a 30 sec
    vid w me venting. I forgot about it and then suddenly I started getting
    weird questions like “why do you hate us?” and then I deleted the vid and I
    felt guilty and angry at myself. The class wouldn’t talk to me and I was
    going thru a shitty time. I have problems w talking in front of people bc
    that gives me anxiety attack so my school counsellor told them what was
    going on. But I still haven’t forgiven myself and I feel horrible for doing

  11. Thank you so much for this video, i really needed it. 

  12. Okay Kati, here’s my question for you. Lets say I vent to a friend (in
    confidence) about a bad breakup I had and I say all these bad things and
    she turns around and tells my ex boyfriend. If I move on, forgive her, and
    let go of the anger/negative emotions that I had towords the situation. But
    she still betrayed me. If I don’t want to open up to that friend again does
    that mean I haven’t forgiven her yet? I mean, I don’t want to get hurt, and
    at the same time I’m not mad at her. I just have this sinking feeling that
    if I open up to her again she’ll hurt me like last time. 

  13. I am working on forgiveness. Although it is on the back burner, I feel like
    forgiveness is a big part of recovering from PTSD. Through the Courage to
    Heal Workbook I have realized that I have to forgive those people who
    abused me in the past. I am a much happier person knowing that I can
    forgive myself for the past even when my flashbacks are really bad because
    I can differentiate the past from the present. I think forgiveness is
    important because we have to let go of the past and the things in the past
    that hurt us in order to move on and be a happier more successful person in
    the future. :D

  14. Wonderful quote regarding forgiveness:

    “As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I
    knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in
    prison.” -Nelson Mandela

  15. This is really interesting… I find it really hard to gauge if I’ve done
    something wrong, whether I need to forgive or whether I have been forgiven
    for something. You say that you can forgive someone, but not be best
    buddies (if you were before) again with them. This is hard for me to grasp,
    because how is that true forgiveness? True forgiveness for me has to revert
    completely back to how things were before. Really thought-provoking video.
    Thanks Kati <3 xxxxxxx

  16. Thanks for this video today Kati, I truly believe that we, as in everyone,
    hold onto some sort of inability to forgive someone. We get caught up in
    the fast pace of life and don’t even realize that it has a domino affect.
    Holding onto it is only hurting ourselves, the other person has already
    move on past it. I need to constantly remind myself to forgive my ex
    fiance, but in truth I need to forgive myself as well for resenting and
    being angry at him for the past 3 years. Sorry for rambling on, what I’m
    trying to say is thank you for reminding me that it is only hurting me, not

  17. Is there such a thing as forgiving too much to such an extent that you’re
    the one who ends up hurt? Like letting everyone off the hook too easily and
    bottling everything up so much that it just causes an overload? Sometimes,
    it feels like that’s what I’m supposed to be doing because I don’t like to
    get angry at others or hurt them.

  18. yay! glad you got a holiday, kati, but sooooo happy to see a new video from
    you :o)
    forgiveness is a tough topic. i find it generally easy to see things from
    others’ point of view so forgiving them is not that difficult. but i seem
    to take more thn my share of blame and cant forgive myself.

  19. Hi Kati. I love your videos! You are so helpful and inspiring! Where is the
    article you mentioned with the 6 stages of forgiveness? I would like to
    read it. 

  20. I guess both I just think this video is just so on time thank you Kati!

  21. this is perfect timing for me!! Thanks Kati! :)
