Step 1

Read the following:

“Without justice courage is weak.” -Benjamin Franklin

“There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.” -Josh Billings

“Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it foregoes revenge and dares forgive an injury.” -E. H. Chapin

“Forgiveness is of high value, yet it costs nothing.” -Unknown

Do any of these quotes speak to you? If so, which ones and why?

Step 2

How much do you worry that an unfair situation will be repeated or that you'll never be able to move beyond what happened?

Step 3

How has your worry affected your friendships and other relationships?

Step 4

How has your fear influenced your educational or career or other life decisions?

Step 5

There really is only one way to overcome fear.

*Forgive the other person for what happened. Let it go. Do this by focusing on your present and future and leaving the past behind.

*If necessary forgive yourself for what happened.

*Take back the power over your life, refusing to allow memories to haunt you.

*Ask for help.

*Focus on your present and your future.

That's all you really have control over anyway - choices now and choices about your future.

How willing are you to give some of these suggestions as much mental energy as you've previously given the fear?

Step 6

What would you like for people to say about you in 10 years?

Step 7

What could you do today that your 'future self' would thank you for?

Step 8

How willing are you to start the process today, assuming it would bring out the best in you and bring about an outcome your future children would be proud of?

Step 9

So...what are you going to do starting today?
