Excerpts from “Forgiveness – The Greatest Healer of All” by Gerald Jampolsky

One key word, willingness, gives you the power to move ahead in the forgiveness process.

  1. You may find it helpful to write a letter to the person you wish to forgive and then tear up the letter or burn it.
  2. Remember that in the process of forgiving the other person, you are forgiving yourself.
  3. Remember that in forgiving, you are not agreeing with the other person or condoning their hurtful behavior.
  4. Be clear that your only goal is peace of mind, not changing or punishing the other person.
  5. Enjoy the happiness and peace that comes from forgiving.
