We've all been hurt before, and we've also hurt others. Most of us hate dealing with confrontation and have a really hard time apologizing, which leads us to tiptoeing around the actual situation and never actually resolving the issue.
How do you get to a place where you can talk openly to the other person about your feelings and try to reach a real resolution? What if that person won't accept your apology or you're not ready to accept theirs? How do you both move on when one person refuses to forgive and forget? Can you get real closure if the other person refuses to give you one?
Whether we did the hurting or need to do the apologizing, it's important for us to approach these situations with the right levels of maturity and sensitivity. Confronting a friend who hurt you takes a great deal of strength, but so does taking ownership of your actions and learning to apologize for your behavior. Regina shares her story of how she found the courage to confront her coworker in a difficult work situation and Christine finds peace within herself as she seeks a resolution for her tumultuous relationship with her dad.
