Forgiveness is unquestionably the concept most central to Attitudinal Healing. Holding onto unforgiving thoughts and attitudes is the biggest block to experiencing love in our life. How do we stop replaying the old tapes that keep us holding on to past grievances toward ourselves and others? The attitude of true forgiveness does not mean that we deny what has happened. The key is to have the willingness to forgive, to release past hurt and choose to live in the present. Forgiving someone is like freeing them from prison only to discover the real prisoner was you.
