Forgiveness. Forgiveness of self and others is a big part of healing. It can't be rushed, but it evolves in its own time when issues are addressed and processed honestly. This means you can't skip over the pain part into forgiveness; it's important to acknowledge what's happened. Psychiatrists can assist this process by witnessing it with you, keeping you on track, and showing you compassion when you forget.
