Forgiving Perpetrators, Perceived and Real
Excerpt from the book, How To Get Over Yourself and Let Go of the P.A.S.T.
“You must choose to release your perpetrators, both perceived and real, from your heart. The longer you hold on to them, the longer it takes for you to grab hold of your future and move forward.
Your future is waiting for you to release those past experiences and grab hold of the new experiences it has for you.
Make your choice today to let go of your past!”
Look back in your life. Consider the pain, the heartache, the unforgiveness you have experienced. Doesn’t it make sense to just forgive those that have hurt you?
Why? They are moving forward in life. He or she is quite possibly unconcerned with what you are experiencing.
Let your life be an example of true forgiveness. Perhaps this perpetrator will see your example and decide that the way he or she is living is not altogether right.
Learn from your P.A.S.T. and forgive. Someone is waiting to see your example so they can follow.
How? Do this:
1. Write a letter to the perpetrator. It does not have to be mailed. Just writing it will be healing. In the letter, acknowledge each and every offense. Forgive.
2. Release the person from any wrongdoing. You cannot imagine how good you will feel just from this action!
3. Thank the person for allowing you to experience this growing moment.
