Dr. DeFoore's Healing Anger Newsletter entitled "Why Is Forgiving So Hard?"
October 15, 2015
Why Is It Hard To Forgive
"Forgiveness is letting go of the need to hold on to grievances in order to move on with a positive focus."
Dr. William DeFoore
This doesn't mean you have to be miserable while going through the forgiving process. We learn and grow through our pain, and through our healing journey.
Forgiveness is for you, not for the other person. You benefit when you let go of the resentment and anger you feel inside. You can't punish the wrongdoer by keeping toxic emotions and resentful thoughts within your body and mind.
If true forgiveness is hard for you, or even if it seems impossible, here are some very good choices you have.
The main thing I suggest is, don't give yourself a hard time about it. Some things are very hard to forgive...even unforgivable.
You notice I said, "Some things are hard to forgive. Some acts of wrongdoing are unforgivable, but the person is not unforgivable. All beings are worthy of forgiveness, even if their acts are truly unforgivable.
This can be hard to sort out, but again, don't stress yourself about it.
Here are some things you can do if you're having trouble forgiving:
