At this time of year, many people are setting new intentions. The top two seem to be spending more time with family and friends and losing some weight. Maybe you’ve realized that holding a grudge or some other form of anger is holding you back from those goals.
To clear the path, perhaps one of your New Year’s resolutions is to forgive someone, but already you have discovered deep down that you rather get revenge. Well, try looking at it this way.
- Remember that forgiveness is something you do for yourself — it’s a selfish act.
- With Radical Forgiveness you are not condoning what they did.
- You don’t have to like them to forgive them.
- It’s OK to feel your feelings about it.
Then, insofar as you are able to achieve peace and harmony within by doing the Radical Forgiveness worksheet, the tables will automatically be turned. Rather than returning the attack with an attack as a way to get even, you will get your revenge by sending back love and gratitude. Since Love is the most powerful force in the Universe, nothing can resist it. Can there be a sweeter revenge than by using the event as an opportunity to turn hatred into Love? I don’t think so. But don’t take my word for it.
