with our fel-
gressions harm others as well as us,
and by extension, society as a whole
Among the most difficult things
one can do is admit that he or she is
wrong and ask for forgiveness. That
is the beginning of the healing
process that we introduce with

Questions to think about

• The Torah teaches us that
there are two kinds of sin: those
against God (such as violating
Shabbat) and those against man.
We cannot ask God's forgiveness
for our sins against other human
beings, but instead must go direct-
ly to those whom we have offend-
ed. Have you taken the time to
ask pardon from individuals you
know you have wronged?
• Reflect on your actions dur-
ing a disagreement. Do you
always insist you're right? Can you
see another's perspective? Who do
you think is the stronger person:
the one who asserts that he is
always right, or the one who is
willing to say, "I may be wrong"?
• Think carefully before you
make an apology. Sorry if you
were upset by what I said, but ...”
is not really an apology. It just
shifts blame back to the offended
person ("You were upset by what I
said? What's the matter with
you?"). A better way to say it is:
"I'm sorry I upset you."
• Consider how often you've
apologized to family members.
They're the people we love most,
but often treat with the least
• Are you really able to accept
another's sincere apology, or do
you tend to harbor a grudge? If
you answered yes, ask yourself why.
