Psychology and Forgiveness

Psychology and Forgiveness

Psychologists generally define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness.

Think of something that’s been bugging you – something that somebody did to wrong you, maybe, or just something that didn’t strike you just right.

Think of this thing – and then try to forgive. Notice the word “TRY.” Forgiveness is a difficult path, one that takes practice. For today, just accept the effort.

If you need a little reminder about how to forgive, here’s one. The beauty of forgiveness is in the trying. See what happens when you make the attempt.
