Letter of Forgiveness

Filed under: writing and healing — freethepen @ 1:23 pm

Janhawaii2015 Everyone has met someone who betrayed, gossiped about, or injured her in some way. Are you still holding onto that pain? Do you still get angry when you think about if? Sit and write a letter of forgiveness to the person or persons who have injured you. Do not send them! Tuck them away somewhere, burn them, bury them, but write them. Write until you feel full of forgiveness and pay attention to how free you are when you are finished. Forgiveness is often misunderstood. You are not condoning their behavior. You are simply saying I give away this pain for the benefit of my own life and I wish you a blessing for healing. Assert that you will not hold onto the painful actions of others.

Keep the pen moving,
