How do you forgive someone who’s hurt you?
How do I forgive my husband for physically hurting me? How do I get him to go to counseling for being so angry he put his hands on me? How do I help him understand that he was wrong? How do I help him understand that I had every right to say something to the police to protect myself? he’s moved out of the house after I made a report and he was arrested. He’s intending to divorce me asap rather than look at the huge problem we have. He’s blaming me for being wrong and reporting him, and not accepting that his actions were harmful. He’s convincing himself I am the bad guy so that he can run away from his life and his actions without any consequence. I love him enough to want him to fix himself. Even if it’s not for me anymore. He needs to accept his behavior and forgive himself. But how can I forgive (and heal from) a man who blatantly refuses to admit the truth and apologize? How can I ever move on if he cannot admit what he has done to me?
