It is helping me let go of some things I never believed possible. Very good so far.

I'm interested in this - I had a long talk about forgiveness with a friend the other day.

His take is we first learn to forgive ourselves, then others. Until we can forgive we are bound to that problem or person as well as the negative feelings associated with it. Once we can forgive we can truly be free.

I never thought I'd ever consider forgiving XWH, but now I see it as possible down the line. Will I tell him? Probably not, because it's not for him, it's for me.

So I've been thinking a lot about this topic recently - I think I will check this book out.

I saw this recommended previously and put it on hold at the library.
Just had a message it's ready for pick up.
Looking forward to reading it and hoping for some help.
