Forgiveness is an essential act in keeping relationships strong. It can be hard to forgive at times because we often associate forgiveness with forgetting. I have heard many people say, If we forget, we can forgive. However, that is not entirely the case.  We strengthen our bonds of love and friendship with a plethora of forgiveness and patience. 

It starts with treating those you love how you expect to be treated. Be respectful of their perspectives even when you disagree. When you are concerned with expressing yourself to your partner, it can be easy, if you allow it.  Your point of views can be different, however, keep calm and state facts rather than opinions.  I avoid getting angry and feeling defensive when addressing concerns. Also, it is beneficial to forgive your partner because their support is valuable to you. 


Forgiveness means your relationship is able to stand the test of honesty. Although, there are times when you will disapprove of the actions of your partner,  avoid being judgmental. Taking the time to explain the downside of their actions is an effective way to correct behaviors or your concerns. This approach can build an even stronger bond between the both of you. When we listen intently to each other, we strengthen the togetherness. Practice by paying attention to your partner because it teaches you to appreciate them. 


Forgiving allows you to have a peace of mind, an open heart, and for you to do all that is possible to keep your bond forever strong.


To spot check your forgiveness and patience often through self-reflection.  Self-reflection is a great tool to utilize.  

Ask yourself these three simple questions: 

  1. How can I practice exercising patience?

  2. What are some ideal ways to let my partner or someone know that I forgive them?

  3. How do I approach my partner and request their apology after they offend me?
