Being understanding and being forgiving are closely connected. When I am able to comprehend a person’s thoughts, feelings and motivations, I more easily release any errors they have made toward me.

Understanding what someone is going through or how he feels helps my mind be more open to conciliation. Envisioning how a person is affected by a situation makes me a better person.

When I say I understand someone, I know they feel listened to and at peace. I can honestly then forgive and go forward in life.

I feel pride in my ability to understand the thoughts and feelings of others and make sense of them. And I am consistent in my efforts to avoid negativity by extending an olive branch whenever needed.

Today, I listen well so I can more easily understand others, forgive and move on. I am proud of my efforts to be understanding and forgiving.
