Forgiveness, grace, and healing. When should we embrace them, how can they help our relationships grow, and why do they sometimes cause continued emotional pain rather than the healing we first think they promise? On this episode of Women of Impact, Host of Love Goals on the OWN Network and therapist, who is simply known as Spirit, joins Lisa Bilyeu to discuss such topics and more as they explore forgiveness, grace, and the power of building scar tissue in a relationship. They discuss how to properly embrace an apology, the power of grace needed in a relationship, the difference between a mistake and a bad choice, why scar tissue is a good thing, how ego is the root cause of judgement, and why you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself because of your past mistakes.
