    I think we’re all “work in progress” beings. As long as we realize and aren’t too hard on ourselves, I think we’ll do fine. Nice post. :)

    Great well thought out post!
    This is hard but once we are willing to forgive those that have hurt us as well as ourselves for the people we hurt, it does transform your life.
    Thanks for sharing & linking up over at Oh My Heartsie Girl. Hope to see you at next week’s party.

    I have to bookmark this so I can read it again! Words that have been used to describe me:

    Stubborn
    Obstinate
    Recalcitrant

    Words that have not been used to describe me:

    Willing
    Eager
    Accepting

    So. When I was reading this I had the strong desire to shut the screen and walk away. My brain REALLY doesn’t want to hear about being Willing. Haha. But I so need this in my life. I’m going to reread it until my stubborn little brain willingly accepts the entire message. (See what I did there?)

    Thanks for writing this.

    Thank you for sharing such postive & uplifting words. I believe you have to be willing to admit when your wrong in order to become more than you was once. Great reflection post.

    Great post! I love that willingness to make amends comes before the actual amends. Becoming ready to make amends is harder than making the actual amends for me.

      Very true especially if we create a bunch of hype in our minds about what may or may not take place when we make our amends. Thanks for stopping by, Beth!

    Great post…….I think we all need to go thru a 12 step program on our own about once
    a year to keep us clean fit vessels.
    Cause we need to keep short accounts with God, and we are more joyful people that way.
    Thanks for taking the time to write this, such important truths you have shared, and we
    are all a work in progress.

    I like the saying I am not as good as I am going to be, but I am not as bad as I used to be!! lol Sooooooo True!

    Blessings hon,

    I think your post has so many truths. We have all hurt someone in life, both by accident and also on purpose. It hard to escape that our actions can have such awful impacts. I pray for forgiveness and try to make amends. Sometimes it is hard, but with faith we can overcome. Thanks for sharing. Now I need to read the other parts of the series.

    I like how this is called willingness because it is our willingness to admit when we are wrong, and also being able to forgive when someone has wronged us. Thanks for sharing this excellent article on Social Butterfly Sunday!
