I skipped the phone call this week but I wanted to send you information about this month’s Tool Box Tool that your children would be practicing. I thought it might be a good time to think about this one at home too.
TOOL BOX: Apology and Forgiveness Tool
“I admit my mistakes and work to forgive others.”
A sincere apology opens the door to self-responsibility and forgiveness. It takes self-esteem and inner strength to admit a mistake and do the right thing. Using the Apology Tool is a giant leap towards maturity. Forgiveness takes equal strength. It requires letting go of anger and judgment.
It does not mean we have to forget, but there must be a willingness to forgive. If we are still holding the hot ember of anger, resentment, or hatred, we are the one still getting burned.
VOTA (Valley of the Arts) Goes Virtual
