Dear ILites, As a continuation to our series on http://www.indusladies.com/forums/married-life/249510-building-positivity-married-life-forum.html, I would like to invite suggestions on how partners can effectively forgive each other's transgressions and move forward. Personally, I think forgiving anyone is hard work. When it comes to a spouse, it becomes even harder. Sometimes, the lapses are not easy to put aside and move forward and yet I'm sure being able to do that makes relationships stronger. I don't think by forgiving, we are compromising or being taken for granted. What do each of you think about getting over issues and putting the past away? How do you think spouses can forgive each other effectively? Is there anything your partner has done to help you forgive him/her and move on or vice versa? Do you have any tips for those who find it hard to let go and let bygones be bygones? Please share.
