How do you get over hurting your friend?

ANONYMOUS WRITES: I have hurt several of my friends during this past year. Some were hurt more than others. It hurts me very much also. I never intended to bring pain to anyone.

All of these instances were at least partially a result of a small misunderstanding. And I consider myself to be more or less at fault in all of them.

In some cases, it hasn’t taken more than a few months to get past, but others (even really old ones) still bring me much pain. How can I get over this? Everyone forgave everyone and I have changed my ways significantly, but what do I do when it still hurts?

What about the times I can’t look my friend in the eye anymore? Am I just not forgiving myself? If that is the case, how do I forgive myself? I know that God and my friends have forgiven me, so why does this still bring me to tears?
