Can Cody Forgive His Mom? EP 7

How to Forgive Those Who Have Deeply Hurt You.

In This Episode:

No doubt there is at least one person in your life you need to forgive. This person has deeply hurt you, violated you and caused you tremendous pain. What the person did to you is inexcusable but it is forgivable. Forgiving them means you are giving up your right to get even with that person. Even if you don’t feel like it, choose forgiveness for your own well-being.

Did Today’s Episode Get You Thinking?

What happens if you don’t forgive? You become a slave to bitterness. Bitterness will corrupt you and those around you. Forgiving is not easy but with God’s help, all things are possible. He forgave us therefore we absolutely can offer forgiveness to others, no matter the offense. The Bible says to, “Make allowance for each other's faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.” (Colossians 3:13)

One comment on “Can Cody Forgive His Mom? EP 7”

  1. I am 39. Since I was in high school I have been a kind caring genuine human being. I have never done anything intentional before to hurt friends feelings, never! Recently I reacted harshly to a good good friend. He was actually my best friend, someone I have always reached out to when I needed a friend to talk to and someone who I tried to make smile and laugh, if he was down. He did hurt my feelings too, he is not innocent. I finally forgave myself because I felt that if I were to act in person on something I typed to him, then that would have been worse, but I didn't act on it. I would never have acted on it and I want him to know that, but he has me blocked. I know I can create an email, but I do want to respect his privacy, obviously he doesn't want to talk to me. I honestly do not want to forgive myself, but I cannot be miserable the rest of my life without ruining another relationship in the mix. I refuse to ruin someone else's relationship because I got myself into a mess. Is it normal for a man in his 50's to just cowardly block me without talking to me or telling me I suck or whatever it is better than blocking me?
