In today's episode, Angela and Patti discuss forgiving family members and hurtful words.

Have you ever said something so hurtful and regretted it?

The same is true for family members who have said angry, hurtful words to you. Hurting people lash out at others. Words hurt profoundly, and a lot of times are not forgotten. Speaking in anger can be dangerous for all relationships, even if it is accurate and how you are feeling at that moment in time. The damage has been created and really can't be taken back.

Why do we say hurtful words? First, it's helpful to understand why people become habituated to saying hurtful things.

Understanding why people say hurtful things will help you see underneath the words; the hurt the person is experiencing.

Patti often says in our podcasts, "hurt people - hurt other people."

Angela - What I see is that people who are hurt have no way to heal their hurt or resolve it - so they project it out - like spitting out the poison inside them - or when you spit out something that you don't like in your mouth.

The thing is - it seems pretty stupid to spit out your hurt on someone else - if you want to stay friends with them.

So why would we do that?

Well, monkey sees - monkey do.

How do you forgive?

This is the hardest thing for most people. Unforgiveness is a poison on your soul and spirit. People with un-forgiveness spill it out on others, and the cycle continues down the line.

Questions to journal or self reflect on:

Are apologies needed to be said before healing can happen? YES or NO

What if apologies never happen?

What if the family member doesn't want to make amends?

How will you let go and forgive without an apology?

When un-forgiveness takes over your thoughts and heart, recite the Hawaiian Forgiveness Prayer Ho'oponopono" at least three or more times. First, say the person's name and then the prayer. Or you may not get a chance to apologize or get an apology; this prayer will assist in healing and forgive with a true desire to heal the relationship.

I'm sorry

Please forgive me

I love you

Thank you
