It is never too late to repair.
Even if we cannot go back in time we can still give each other the healing experience now of acknowledging the hurt we caused. When the hurt is acknowledged we don’t need to project it on the other and we can start to heal.
Both perspectives need to be allowed to co-exist for a deeper understanding to unfold.
