Although you may have forgiven someone, it is possible they have not forgiven you or their own emotional wounds serve as a block, hindering their ability to nurture the space (friendship, relationship).
This is evident by the 'emotional jabs' they inflict upon you. By inviting these individuals into your life, these 'emotional jabs' will exacerbate any of your residual wounds, prolonging the healing period. It is the equivalent to inviting them into your beautiful, clean, new house (symbol for forgiveness and new beginnings) and they enter with muddy construction boots, walk around your living room, plop down on your new sofa and then say,
'For a new place, it sure is dirty! What kind of person lives like this? Why can't you take care of stuff? By the way you keep your space, you aren't welcome in mine.'
Either they do not realize or refuse to be accountable that they are the one who brought in the mud. Never allow anyone to convince you their 'muck' is yours. - Misha N. Granado, MPH, MS
