I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.
Today’s tip is to take time to forgive someone who hurt you in the past.
This is a personal item. I think many of us feel wronged or hurt by others, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose. In either case, the event can be very upsetting and impactful to us.
I don’t want to publicly note who I’m forgiving, but I am making it a point to do so, and let someone know that I forgive their past transgression.
This is certainly something I need to work on. There are people that I feel have treated me poorly, and I haven’t forgiven them. I should let some things go, but I am struggling, especially when some people don’t seem to acknowledge their actions.
