Eli: If Jake won’t forgive me, I’m never going to get better. Therapist: That’s not true. Eli: But you said that apologizing is an important part of recovery. Therapist: You apologized to Jake, you cannot force people to forgive you. Eli: So what am I supposed to do? Wait around until he changes his mind? Therapist: No, you move on with your life, find some positive activity.
