Can you forgive and forget?



We do not always behave or conduct ourselves as we should and there are certain times when we wish we had not spoken, or acted, as we did. Sometimes, we have to accept that our relationship with someone has been broken. However, later there often comes a time when we might wish to try to make amends. But what happens when the other person says it is too late or that they are no longer interested?



A case study



John is a 75-year-old client of mine. He had been married twice and his second wife had died just a year ago. John was referred to me by his doctor because he was feeling depressed and lonely. He now recognises that many years ago, he made his children's step-mother his priority over his two young sons, Richard and Michael. Now, after being retired for some months, he is a lonely man, and would desperately like to spend some of his time with his two children. Richard, his eldest son, has accepted that his father could have made him a greater priority over his step-mother but has learned to be somewhat philosophical about this and is now more than happy to develop an affectionate relationship with him.
