Call in to speak with the host
Come join us as we talk about Forgiveness. One of the hardest and most difficult things we humans are asked to do is to respond to people that hurt us with kindness, and sometimes to forgive the unforgivable. Although we may enjoy reading stories about people who've responded to hatred with love; however, it is quite different when that very thing is demanded of us personally. Anger, angst, depression, righteousness and hatred. Yet study after study shows that one of the keys to longevity and good health is to develop a habit of gratitude and to let go of past hurts.
Want to live a long, happy life? Learn to forgive; it really is one of the kindest things you can do for yourself no matter what the offender has done. To forgive does not mean you are accepting or forgetting what occurred; it means that you are choosing to be free. Come join us Monday, December 1st at 11pm eastern as we heal through forgiveness. Here are some of the steps that we will be reviewing:
Realize that any hate or negative feelings you feel towards the offender does not harm him or her in the slightest.
Make a list of the good things that happened as a result of this awful experience.
Look for the helpers not instigators.
Consider the bigger picture.
Be compassionate with yourself.
Learn that the Aramaic word for "forgive" means literally to "untie."
Do not tell "the story" to obsession.
Imagine that you are the other person (the one who offended you) and use the word "I" when saying what that person might say.
Tune in for the rest and add to the conversation...
It's good to talk.
