I tried looking it up and couldn't find the word with the meaning I needed, the reverse dictionary didn't help either.
What I found:
- "redemptory", but from what I understand it's 1. old 2. sounds odd 3. doesn't mean exactly what I'm looking for.
- "redemptive", but, again, from what I understand, it is mostly associated with Christianity + the meaning is far off, so it's not for me.
- "redeeming" means "making someone or something seem less bad", so it's also not what I need, since someone seems less bad in someone else's eyes, and I need an adjective describing a feeling coming from within.
In general, "redeem" and its forms seem to focus more on redeeming yourself in someone else's eyes rather than your own.
