I know I have the skills to mend relationships from the past. Some relationships are inherently challenging, so I recognize that there may be times when unfortunate situations develop between me and another person.
Nonetheless, I refuse to allow these challenging occurrences to deter me from doing whatever I can to mend the relationship.
It is important for me to feel that I make efforts to heal old hurts.
I could just walk away from troubling events I experience with other people. This seems easy. During those times, I tell myself, “It doesn’t matter.” However, I realize that some relationships do matter. Some are worth the time and effort it takes to mend them.
To lighten my heart, I decide to at least try to bring healing to a relationship. Otherwise, I may never know the blessings I might have received from continuing my bond with them.
When a challenging situation occurs between me and someone else, I give myself time to think about what happened. I openly consider my role in the situation. Reflecting on whether I made an error helps me learn what to do when similar events happen in the future. Going forward, I can handle conflict differently.
Today, I make efforts to mend relationships important to me. The value of a relationship far surpasses the effort required to heal it. I recognize this important idea and reflect it in my actions as I work to make amends.
