“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” – Gandhi

Here are some tips on helping you to forgive.

• Acknowledge your feelings; that you were hurt or are feeling angry
• Work through your feelings: talk about it, write about it, cry about it
• Learn to let go of these feelings (It may take time)
• Forgiveness is NOT about forgetting, but about letting go of those feelings
• Letting go of the pain of the memory means that that it no longer controls us
• Forgiveness is about freeing up and putting to better use the energy consumed in holding on to grudges or resentment
• NOT forgiving is like drinking a cup of poison, and hoping the other person will die
