GOAL: Use the Inner Super Power of Forgiveness to let go of your emotional burden.
Think of someone who has hurt you and you’re still holding onto to the pain. Pick someone who may be easiest for you to forgive. Just like any other skill, forgiveness is something you can get better at with practice.
Grab a piece of paper and a pen and start writing that person a letter. This exercise is for you. You don’t have to send this letter to them for this to work so write freely.
Once you are done writing down all the things you think and feel, then move onto forgiveness. Write down why you are choosing to forgive them and how you are ready to move forward.
EXAMPLE: Dear _________________, I choose to forgive you. I’m not saying what you did was OK. I just don’t need to hold onto this burden anymore. I can’t be ___________ (insert your negative emotion here) and be free and happy at the same time. I choose to be free and happy. I deserve to be free and happy. I forgive you now.
EXAMPLE OF FORGIVING YOURSELF: I forgive myself. I have allowed my guilt, anger, and fear to control me for far too long. I am realizing I do not need to feel bad about the past to make good decisions moving forward. I am committed to learning from my past and to always work on becoming a better version of myself. I forgive myself completely for my mistake. I love who I have become today. I am ready to move forward peacefully. I deserve to be free and happy.
