The Stepping Stones to Forgiveness

1. Be open to the possibility of changing your beliefs about forgiveness. Recognize that forgiveness is an act of strength, not weakness.

2. Be willing to let go of being a victim. Choose to beleive that holding ointo grievances and unforgiving thoughts is choosing to suffer. There is no solution in self pity.

3. Remind yourself that your anger and judgments can´t change the past or punish someone else. The events about the past can´t hurt you now, but yoru thoughts about the past can cause you immense distress and pain. Recognize that any emotional pain you feel in this moment is caused only by your own thoughts.

4. See the value of giving up, not some, but all of your judgments. It is no coincidence that the happiest people are those who choose not to judge and know the value of foirgiveness.

5. Recognize that hoilding onto anger will not bring you what you truly want. Ask yourself this question, "Does holding onto my justified anger really bring me peace of mind?" Anger and peace; judgment and happiness do not occur at the same time.
