“Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Say you’re sorry” is something that I used to say frequently as an elementary classroom teacher. After a child muttered “sorry,” it was never clear what the other student should do or whether the situation was actually repaired. This theme feels especially timely these days. Studies have found that people who know how to forgive are generally happier and have stronger relationships. As an adult, I am still learning to apologize and forgive.
