Not Forgetting but Forgiving,
By A Customer
This review is from: Forgive for Good: A Proven Prescription for Health and Happiness (Hardcover)
Forgive For Good does not say that we need to reconcile or make up with the people that have hurt us. Reconciliation and forgiveness are two different things. In accessible language, Dr. Luskin offers us a clear understanding of what it means to forgive. We learn that forgiveness is not about who caused the pain and why, but how we can move on with our choices and our lives. We can't control other people but we can control how we deal with the pain that has been caused in the past. This is what Forgive For Good is all about. This book offers us a proven approach to dealing with pain in our past and moving forward. We all know how easy it is to be stuck in the cycle of blame. With Forgive For Good, we aren't told to forget but rather to make choices about how we want to live in the present and future. Again, this is not about being a pushover or forgetting. Forgive For Good is about how we choose to deal with the anger and pain that someone or something has caused. We can let it ruin our lives or we can read Forgive For Good and make the right decisions for the here and now.
