How To Forgive

How can we bring ourselves to forgive someone who has been wrong, mean, or thoughtless to us? The School of Life explores How To Forgive, an animated video that aims to change our perspective, and help us come around to cutting others some slack.

Firstly: we must remember how the other person got there, to this place of idiocy and cruelty. Every irritating fault in another person has a long history behind it. They have become like this because of flaws in their development, which they did not choose for themselves. They were shaped by troubles which we cannot see but which we can know exist… Secondly, and very strangely, there are difficult things about you too.
