Daily Thought For January 26, 2015

4 Stages of Forgiveness

1. Recognize the problem and be angry. (Easy enough! ) 

2. Do something to diminish your hurt. It may involve trying to see things from the other's perspective or just to assert that the matter was not a big deal. 

3. Recall how good it felt to forgive in the past. 

4. Make a serious effort not to let yourself be offended by things.
