Forgiveness is key to a healthy marriage and self-awareness is the first step to offering forgiveness. Consider Worthington’s “injustice gap” experiential theory as an explanation for the impact a personal offense has on an individual (p. 121). Now consider his concepts of “decisional forgiveness” and “emotional forgiveness” as desired goals of the forgiveness process. How might these concepts bring self-awareness that could serve a person’s ability to forgive their spouse? What key points of resistance do you predict would challenge an individual’s ability to offer both forms of forgiveness to their mate?
