Forgive and Forget…

Task 7: Focus on the Favours of Forgiveness

Let’s concentrate on the reasons why you should forgive people. List them within a 15-minute time frame and try to provide detail if you can. For example, ‘My anger and resentment towards my ex-husband sets a bad example to my son. By forgiving my husband, I will stop undermining the relationship between my son and his father; a relationship which is very important in these formative years.’

Forgiveness brings so many rewards to you and everyone around you

Reasons to Forgive

  • To stop driving yourself mad
  • Peace of mind
  • Better mental, spiritual, and physical health
  • The right thing to do for you and everyone around you
  • Serenity
  • Shed a weight that’s been hideous to carry
  • Stop being so stuck
  • Freedom from the pain
  • Ability to move on
  • A gigantic step in the right direction
  • A small step for you, a leap (or giant one) for mankind
  • Major growth
  • A much richer self
  • Enlightenment
  • A good example to everyone around you

Add anything else that comes to mind for you – and share it around so others can benefit from your wisdom!
