I am in the process of reconciling with a close friend. We are trying to forgive each other. I am now scared. Is it normal to feel scared about this? What can I do to get over this fear?

In all likelihood, you are scared because your trust has been damaged. Forgiveness can help with this, but you need more than just forgiveness. ??As you see the other person’s genuine attempts to be kind, to be respectful, note these. ??Trust usually is built up one action at a time. ??As you see that he or she means well and is trying, this should reduce your fear and increase your willingness to trust once again.
