60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday: Better Mental Health Begins With Forgiveness
by Diane Wyzga | March 29, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Giresun, Turkey!
Coming to you from WhidbeyIsland, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday and your host, Diane Wyzga.
Many’s the time over the years when I’ve stomped around and made furious gestures because some fool in my life did something hurtful – to me! The idea of compassion, of forgiveness could not, would not, should not be tolerated.
But, what if this solid conviction was like swallowing rat poison and wishing the rat would die? What if I was standing in my own way?
My teacher said, “If I have hurt anyone through my ignorance and confusions, intentionally or unintentionally, I forgive myself. If anyone has hurt me through their ignorance and confusions, intentionally or unintentionally, I forgive them. If there is something I am not yet ready to forgive, I forgive myself for that.” [Thich Nhat Hanh]
Question: What if we could make room for the idea that when we forgive ourselves it becomes a natural extension to forgive another – when we are ready – and create better mental health. What kind of leader might we become?
