“You can forgive even if the person you had a conflict with isn’t here anymore, because it’s really about you letting yourself out of resentment prison. Forgiveness is for the forgiver.”
– Terri Cole
If you’re honest with yourself, does the idea of forgiving someone feel like you might be condoning their bad behavior or like they are getting one over on you?
If forgiveness feels complicated (and it is!), this episode is for you. You’ll learn about what I’m calling the new forgiveness, which is about releasing resentment that might be holding you back- not about letting someone off the hook.
Plus, inside this week’s guide, you’ll get a powerful 4-step process to release yourself from the prison that prolonged resentment can become so you can begin your healing process.
