Seeking Forgiveness From Those I Hurt Through My Diagnosis

In my experience, losing friends upon adversity is a common occurrence. Whenever I speak with people who were also diagnosed with cancer, we always bond over the fact that some of the people we were friends with at the time are no longer in our lives. The correlation to this incident is usually that people didn't know how to treat us or weren't there for us in the ways that we expected them to be.

Apologizing to the people that I hurt

But what about OUR behavior? Just because we are the ones faced with this traumatic experience doesn't give us a full ride to not treat those we love with kindness and respect. We all make mistakes and lose ourselves sometimes... and we all deserve apologies. Consider this mine to those I hurt during my diagnosis.
